Beginning to Show

Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark  
will be heard in the light

 
Is it my imagination or
†† † am I beginning to show?  
Was it something I ate?  
 
Regardless, there is new life inside of me.  
 
The sperm and egg embody natureís purest desire for  
continued life even when they came together at the  
betrayal of others. †Does our sin lessen  
the weight of new life?
 
God, our desires were so strong!  
Surely we werenít expected to resist.  
 
Still, how can I end what has begun?

I keep thinking it's not real. But I'll have to face it in the light.
