Journey into Otherhood

Journey into Otherhood

from motherhood
from fatherhood
we enter into the otherhood

from the state of being
a mother or father
we restate ourselves as being
the other
another encompassing all

the state of being
masculine and feminine
student and teacher
leader and collaborator
a new state of wholeness

readied to step back and observe
or act from our knowingness reserve
able to love and preserve
for the greatest good as we serve
and able to lay rest
that which is no longer the best
as we co-create the new
from otherhood
