Shiparah & Puah (Hebrew Scriptures)
Tell me ‘we’ did not hear that.
are not meant to take life.
We are meant to ‘bring’ life into this world.
They are so frightened. (The System of the Day)
‘someone’ coming to free these people from
bondage & slavery.
We cannot stop the ‘spirit’
that has flowed before life, through life
and in life.
Spirit~~~’She’ who resides in our deepest recesses.
We will not kill as we have been instructed/ordered to do…
We are getting called to give account—
what will we say?
No matter what we tell them
their ‘plans’ will not be waylaid.
Oh, Spirit…do not delay.
You, two…Shiparah & Puah—
Why is it the Hebrew women are conceiving and
their children are nursing from their mothers’ breasts?
Why have your hands not strangled them before they took their first breaths?
Pharaohs…we know we greatly
These women give birth differently than we do…(Quick thinking)
By the time we arrive to ‘deliver’
the little ones are already nursing.
Averted…their plan gone awry
Shiparah & Puah rejoice.
Then they hear the outcry
as the newly born are tossed into the Nile.
Already the water red—
embryonic fluids flow
and upon the waves
…a DIVINE plan—
“To be nobody but yourself—in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you somebody else—means to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight, and not stop fighting.”
