Your Birthday

Yesterday you were in the mind of God.
God nursed you in the womb of your
mother with the aid of your father.

Your mother harboured you for
months and gave you out today.

On your birthday do you
thank God for three things?

For the gift of your life?
For the love of your family?
For the goodwill of your friends?

Do you muse on one question?

Where would you be, if your
mother favoured pro-death in the
name of wrong?
