Tick Tock
Tick tock tick tock I hear the maternal clock ticking
I feel my ovaries jumping up and
down in celebration
I feel the tubes smoothness in
preparations of the seed
This seed saved up for just this day…
this seed what they call blessing
Oh this seed that will maybe carry my eyes, my smile, my legs or may be my beautiful small breasts
This seed… I feel the maternal clock ticking tick tock tick tock

Tick tock tick tock I hear the maternal clock ticking
I feel it in my brain… it flashes like the sound of a nice song
I see it in little baby Sean… when he smiles at me
I see it in his big white and black
eyes… and the beautiful chuckle he
make when I play with his tummy
I felt in beautiful baby Natalie, when her soft hands touched mine
I felt it when I touched my best-
friend’s tummy…. It’s somewhere in that curve
Yes my maternal clock is ticking tick tock tick tock

Tick tock tick tock I hear the maternal clock ticking
I see it in his face… every time he
leans forward to kiss me
I see it in his eyes… there is a
reflection of a little one who looks so much like me but then again like him
I feel it in his warm embrace and tight grip
I feel it! When we sail in source of our waters
I can hear the maternal clock ticking tick tock tick tock
