Pregnancy for Woman ( Pregnancy Quotes )

Pregnancy demonstrates the deterministic character of woman's sexuality.
 Every pregnant woman has body and self taken over by a chthonian force beyond her control.

pregnancy quotes, pregnant woman, pregnancy

In the welcome pregnancy, this is a happy sacrifice.
 But in the unwanted one, initiated by rape or misadventure, it is a horror.
Such unfortunate women look directly into nature's heart of Darkness.
For a fetus is a benign tumor, a vampire who steals in order to live.
 The so-called miracle of birth is nature getting her own way.
( Daniel Goldman )

Giving Birth is a Transformation ( Pregnancy Quotes )

pregnancy, quotes, wisdome, pregnancy quotes, giving birth, delievery, baby

Giving birth is a transformation,
 and it doesn't matter whether you've had eight babies before.

 It's still a transformation the next time you have another baby,
because you are no longer the same woman you were before you had that baby
( Penny Handford, quoted in Mothering the New Mother by Sally Placksin )

Let Me Be The Superhero or Somebody Else

In this darkest hour,
I heard the shout and cry,
I heard the pain,
it’s like a blood war, tears are everywhere…
but I just could hear…
couldn't give my hands for help,
I was trap into the fire,
have my body too weak,
but seeing my friend and relatives lives in their last breathe,
I felt so worthless….
so useless…..
why I were not within them??

I wish I were the superhero,
when you screamed then I’ll be there…
I wish I were the superhero,
when you shouted then I come and heal your pain…
I wish I were the superhero,
so I could be your savior and never saw you in trouble…
but I’m not…

I felt so worthless to trap in this dark edge,
just wanna jump everytime I came to the end!
just wanna escape anytime I feel weak!
just wanna lost anytime my courage disappear!

poetry, poem, sad poetry, sad poem, dark poetry, dark poem, superhero

I wish I were the superhero,
but I’m not…
I’m not coming from Galaxy and contain the neutron,
didn't even get bite by the spider,
didn't even look good in the mirror!!
didn't even deserve for a bit of mercy and luck!
didn't even….I...          

I wish I were the superhero,
but I’m not!!
I was the first candle lost her light,
I do hope lighten the earth, but I was burnt less than second,

then should I wish to be somebody else??
just to make me feel better and leave this burdened
just to ensure I had so much better option?
and finally you have no chance to judge me and think me worst??
I do not have wings nor root,
so I could not fly nor stand on the earth,

I wish I were the superhero, but I’m not!
I wish to be somebody else..
so I could start to pretend
that I never get hurt for this inconvenience,
that I never been so serious thinking of you,

that I never been so sad and never been scream that bad!

Pregnant Women ( Pregnancy Quotes )

Pregnant Women! 
They had that weird frisson,
an aura of magic that combined awkwardly with an earthy sense of duty. 
Mundane, because they were nothing unique on the suburban streets;
ethereal because their attention was ever somewhere else. 
Whatever you said was trivial. 
And they had that preciousness which they imposed wherever they went,
compelling attention, constantly reminding you that they carried the future inside,
 its contours already drawn, but veiled, private, an inner secret.

Love is a Magic Ray- Love Quotes

Love is a magic ray,
 emitted from the burning core of the soul and illuminating the surrounding earth.
It enables us to perceive life as a beautiful dream,
 between one awakening and another

Female Bodies ( Pregnancy Quotes )

Remember this, for it is as true as true gets: 
Your body is not a lemon,  You are not a machine.
 The Creator is not a careless mechanic. 
Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. 
Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body

In achieving the depersonalization of childbirth and at the same time solving the problem of pain, our society may have lost more than it has gained.
 We are left with the physical husk; the transcending significance has been drained away. 
In doing so, we have reached the goal which perhaps is implicit in all highly developed technological cultures, mechanized control of the human body and the complete obliteration of all disturbing sensation
( Sheila Kitzinger, Women as Mothers )

Birth is not only about making babies.
 Birth is about making mothers... strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength
