Pregnancy

A Poem by Invisible Ink
"

"
Hard to breath
hard to sit
hard to get back up
hard to stand
hard to walk
hard to run
hard to wear pants
hard to wear shoes
on swollen feet
hard to sleep
always uncomfortable
in stretching skin
hard to bend over
hard to SQUAT
hard to work
hard to play
hard to wash dishes
hard to clean
but easy to eat in between
hard to lift
hard to carry
hard to think
hard to remember
Whose birthday is in November?
hard to turn
hard to take trips
hard to drive
hard to keep up with friends
hard to you-know-what in bed
hard to save money
hard to spend
hard to know
when is the end?
but so easy
to love you
without ever having
seen your face
my new
beautiful
best friend

Aw. That is a really good poem. I like how you list all of the things that are difficult. It made me feel really sympathetic but at the end I am notified that you are going through pain for your love. Great Job! :)
