Motherhood

                                                                 Motherhood
                                                      Georgia Douglas Johnson
                                                               (1880-1966)

                                  Don’t knock on my door, little child 
                                  I cannot let you in;
                                  You know not what a world this is
                                  of cruelty and sin.
Wait in the still eternity Until I come to you.
The world is cruel, cruel, child, I cannot let you through.
Don’t knock at my heart, little one I cannot bear the pain Of turning deaf ears to your call, Time and time again.
You do not know the monster men Inhabiting the earth.
Be still, be still, my precious child, I cannot give you birth.
