Bekah Steimel | If I am that born poet

If I am that born poet

you speak of

then you delivered me

with skilled and loving hands

cutting me out of the womb

of protected insecurity

a witness to my unlikely birth

result of my unlikely conception

the child of flame and sky

burning with gratitude

flying with the freedom

those skilled and loving hands

granted me

which is the most valuable gift

that can ever be given

to celebrate the birth

of a born poet
