thru my lense: Treasure


a gift from my mom
on the day i was baptized
in a lake on a mountain

21 years old and celebrating
my second birthday, without knowing
there was another life in me

three weeks pregnant
and i didn’t suspect it yet,
two bodies baptized that day

years later, on a day that broke
my heart, i found it on the floor
how it got there, i don’t know
