My Birthday | Poem

My first unique day

A calendar day

That initializes my existence

To present me as living

My first cry

A shout in cry

That broke the abreaction

To deliver me to the living

My first breath

An inhalation into a world

That – atmospheric welcome

To present me as Joy

My first suck

An intake of nutrition

That spells sustainability

To shield my being against opposition

My first sight

A gaze into a smiling face

That welcomes me as living

To nurture and awake my potential love

My first movement

A motion conquering distance

That empowers and solidifies my entity

To always move further in life

My first has all multiplied

A presentation of a growing and grown

That – giant dominating power

To rule among the living

My first birthday

A one day event with continuity

That will never be forgetting

To be celebrated among the living

This is very powerful in thought. The whole world is wide open from the first year onward.
