To Live

Your life, a breath
My wage, God's hand in baby's skin
Endearing, a defense mechanism
Evolved through the ages of man and woman
Sleep-wrecked and weary, their service required
To live.

May this seed fall with grace and humility
I shed this husk
Emerging crinkled and striped
All invisible, but for the peering few
All for you, incalculable little one
To live
