As she cradles her newborn

This life that has waited nine months to breathe the outside air

She reminiscences her girlhood years, remembering her girlhood filled with dreams and hopes

Enveloped into the time it took to deliver, Mother now seeks a happy life for this child-- struggling

With the maintenance of his foundation, his home, and his belongings—Mother as a mortal filled with happiness and sorrow—battles for child.

She strives for perfection, imitating the sacrifice her own mother had done for her. Relinquishing stamina and sleep, Mother will narrate her child’s history.
