Once a Pregnant Man

Written by: Fisayo Aderounmu

Woman impregnated a man
Is normal to see pregnant women
If men go about with big tummies
They must be filled with foods/drinks
Else it's a malady/sickness
A mystery ever seen in life
Woman impregnated a man

I've covered my pregnancy all the while 
But my EDD is at hand
My months are over
I'm in 'labour' and it pains much
Which hospital do I visit?
Where is the 'labour' room?
For my save delivery
Where are the doctors?
Oh! The midwives and the nurses

If I'm delayed Mother, 
I stand the risk of still birth and complication
I thought here could be my delivery room
But it's just too small
Even the whole world is too small

To witness the delivery of your babies 
I gaze to the heavens
My life time so minute to push forth
In 'labor' and deliver
Christ bore all my pains on the cross
And you identified with it at my birth
Christ sacrificed His life a ransom for me 
Yet you gave your womb for me

Nine months 
You made your womb my first house
There you kept me and took no rent
In there you made a bed for me
Where I laid and slept quietly 
There I dictated all you eat
And all you ate and drank 
You shared with me 
While I grew in secret

The maternity-a place of four chambers/rooms
Mother, just a room and 
I'll deliver to you
Because the babies are yours 
You impregnated me with touches of care and good morals
And it's formed babies of love, faith and hope

It's your HEART-there I know is save
Sweet mother my sweet Heart
The Heart of my Heart
Who hatched the egg of my life
The greatest gift I can ever give to you
Is to give my heart to CHRIST
