"The only way out is through."


I like Life. In
fact, I think I
like Life too
much. Or rather,
I like too much
Life.

Most people only
like too much Life
sometimes
in their lives.
Forcing a baby
out of your womb,
they say,
is enough Life
for a lifetime.

What do they know?

If I could, I would
give birth every
single day. I
would break my
bones every
single night. I
would speak new
languages to
new boys whom
I would kiss
in new ways.

And I would stare
at the sun
until it had
to turn away.

This was very complex and interesting. The first stanza is a bit confusing, but the last two stanzas ROCKED! In some places the line breaks could be confusing, perhaps lengthening the lines would help. I liked it!
