The Real Beginning.

It’s not easy to be a sperm,
That much I truly can confirm,
Sitting here inside his plumbing,
Never knowing what is coming,
My only goal to try and give,
A biological imperative,
To an egg that’s inside of she,
An ovum that is meant for me,
Waiting here with all my brothers,
Have to race a million others,
To beat the pack and win the prize,
A fine ripe egg to fertilize,
All the while knowing that my winning,
Is really just a small beginning,
The ignition to get things going,
So a baby can start growing,
That’s it, that is my destiny,
To beat the others and break free,
To bravely rush out in the dark,
Find the egg, and light the spark!
