Before light in darkness wrought
submerged in water, incubated
umbilically nourished, my spirit
bid farewell before entering
its new shell, unknown voyage
all the risks of mortal life, strife
hoped for amour, on your own
free to choose, good fortune
smiled, loving parents waited
to receive me, finally born
all systems go, momentary
small mechanical delay, within
the light, finally fixed to grow
so many interesting years ago.
