Just Born

As we look back over the years, we were born pure, a tiny creatures crawling out from a slimy path, gasping the first direct breath in a sterile environment. Lights in the operating theatre shinning and blinding us momentarily. We will then immediately get whack at our bottom, letting out a big cry, sucking more oxygen in our tiny unpolluted lungs.

Traces of blood and the umbilical cord is the only physical reminder of our struggle, our first struggle in this world. And or course our bruise bottom, out initiation to the world, a world that is going to be the place where our 2 strong foot will be firmly planted for the next 30 or 40 or 50 or 60 and if you are lucky enough 90 or 100 years.

We will then be put close to something which we are quite familiar to us for the past 9 months, the consistently beautiful rhythm of “Thup Thup...” of our mother heart. The warmth of her hug embraces us, giving us sanctuary from the coldness of the still and dead air blowing from the air conditioner, we continue from what we have been doing for the past 9 months, dreaming ourselves to sleep only to awaken by some brownish little pointing objects being force into our mouth, “Suck Suck….”, a taste of saltiness accompany the white liquid.

Birth is an aggressive action - the thrust outward with great impetus of a self from within a body into a new environment.


Birth and death contain between them the earthly experience that you perceive as happening within a given period of time, through various seasons, and involving unique perceptions within areas of space-encountered with other human beings, all to one extent or another sharing with you events caused by the intersection of the self and time and space.

I think... I would like to have children of my own.. (quite irrelevant).

Oh well, but I'm just afraid that I wouldn't be able to raise and nuture them into useful people. But at the same time, I wouldn't want to force morals and values down their throat.. Force them to do things against their wills and abilities.....

Sigh.

I love babies!
Shooo cute.

Lynne said...

keatix: Depends on the market lah, sometimes there is more demand than supply, then cannot reach equilibrium, then will become sellers' market, then prices will go up, then interest rates will go up, then the FED will make stupid decisions to lower them, then everybody borrow more $$, then this country will go into more and more deficit ... all becos of titty milk!!!

Pat: You are STILL a baby :D

PaT said...

lynne and soohk!:

wei!! I'm not a baby lor!
-.-""
I'm 16 going on 17.(sound of music!)

Well... Unless a woman's pregnant, her mammary(sp?) glands would not be activated and thus, her nippies would not be able to produce milk....

SO!! How did you know it tastes salty huh!!

Lynne said...

Pat, to me, you ARE a baby lah, haha. As for soohk ... maybe his woman was sweating a lot that day, hahahahahahahahahaha ...

dreaming-neko said...

my~ so deep today!

richwhiteboy said...

Sounds to me like you and your wife are wanting to have a child of your own.

SooHK said...

Lynne and keatix, I guess money is something although its not everything... It allows us to stay alive...

Pat, umm? do you know sometimes you will "milk" first and keep in the fridge. And then when its time ready to give to the baby. You need to warm it. And then you need to try a bit to ensure that is not too warm or its warm enough... So there are people that instead of dropping in the hand.. some new dad actually try it... hahaha... as hand and mouth could stand differrent degree of heat... hahaha

Dreaming neko, deep... hahaha

Richwhiteboy, not ready yet... hahaha
