Who would’ve thought
7 pounds and 10 ounces
Could contain
The weight of the world

Who knew

That his little baby hands
His little baby feet
His little baby body
Could make me
Like Atlas
Hold the world up
But not as punishment

For him

And one day
He’ll take the world off my shoulders
And into his hands
To do with as he pleases

I just hope
That I can leave him
With a world
That doesn’t feel
So Heavy
