Thank you for bringing me into this world. It must have been hard for you as it was for me. I remember lying peacefully inside you when suddenly things started to go very wrong. Something hard began to compress me from all directions. At first it didn’t last very long and occurred every 5-30 minutes then it started lasting for longer and occurring more frequently. It was beginning to become more and more difficult for me to stay but I had nowhere else to go.
Just when I felt like I was about to die I noticed a light in the distance. My gut feeling was to go towards the light; that everything would be alright once I reached the light. But it was becoming increasingly difficult for me to move. Then as if things couldn’t get any worse I started feeling a propelling force. It seemed like all the forces were against me and I wouldn’t reach that light. Turns out the propelling force was moving me forwards and bringing me closer and closer to the light.
I was getting squashed in all directions but it didn’t matter to me as I was getting closer to the light and just like that it was all over. I was free of all that pushing and squashing and here I was in a new place. Yes, this new place is much brighter and louder than my previous home but at least I was rid of all that pushing and squeezing.
I felt a breath of air enter my lungs through my nostrils it was a new sensation and quite painful that I started to cry. Someone lifted me and placed me on your stomach. At once all the pain I was feeling and felt evaporated and the world felt right again. I started to feel the love and protection I felt while inside your stomach and instantly I knew I had nothing to worry as long as you were there.
This new world is filled with trials and tribulations I get hungry, cold and lonely but I have realized there is a light at the end of every tunnel , just like there was a light at the end of the tunnel when I came into this world.
Your new born baby
