Would you let me be a parent?
I may not have a partner who agrees with raising children under the same roof
I may have this body which was not born with a womb
I may already have several children
Or my womb has not held a baby
with just a sight
Even I have not changed the diapers of your baby
Even I have not been called an old bi**h by your child
Just as long ago, we were living in small groups of human beings
One day you went into the forest to pick berries
My breast filled her belly
Another time, my body could not handle giving birth, and I ended up passing away
Everyone raised him together
Just like homo sapiens have been doing for thousands of years
We follow the record which is in our DNA
In this existence here
I may not understand your language
and the ocean is between our lands
Can I love
Children who were born a while after my death?
Would you let me be a parent of our children?
