The Pain

“My little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you.”
-Galatians 4:19

The Pain before the pain
Of giving birth to full humanity.
The anxious groan of “not yet,”
Turning in the womb.

Mother of God, how did you contain
The divine in your earthly frame?
Teach me to be theotokos
That I might bear Christ as well.
