\"I\'m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can\'t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don\'t deserve me at my best.\"
— Marilyn Monroe

Imagination is more important than knowledge...
Albert Einstein

Staring at myself through the eyes of a detective
inspecting every angle,
every inch,
reality sets in.
I am more than a life
I am the carrier of a new life,
every Breath
every Second
every Month that goes by,
My hands rest on this developing urgency,
This overblown balloon
ready to bursts any second,
My creation.

The author's comments:
For my creative writing class, we had to write a poem off a painting of our choice, by the artist of our choice. The painting I picked was called "Inside". It was a painting of a naked pregnant woman.
