Infertility in the Face of Baby Showers...

This full on fertility is making me frown
Another baby shower? Why I’d rather drown!
And each conversation’s of puke, pain and fuss
It just doesn’t sound like it was meant for us.

Do we want to enter the fertility race?
Is having no children a state of disgrace?
Childless by choice or by God’s master plan?
Can’t I blame a disease or two, is that lame?
And what if I turn and desire it the most
and can’t anyway, and then everything’s lost
And there’s no peace of mind because then it’s too late
to go back to contemplating the ‘peace’ of my plight.

This is the first night that I toss and turn
and dwell on this question again and again
but I just can’t stop thinking of how I’m really in dread
of the endless appointments of baby showers ahead.
I’m feeling a great chasm agape at my feet
