Poetry: Once when I was a sperm

I was the strongest
The fastest
One day..
I overcame an army of my brothers
Not even a IUD could stop me
One day, I thought it was worth it
But didn’t know
That a God’s path
Is full of thorns and dynamites
And eclampsias.

I would have owed you a lot
If you tossed me in the toilet.
I would have owed you a lot
If you kept me undisturbed.

I was the strongest
One day when I was a sperm
Now, I undoubtedly realize
That you win one day, and lose the rest.
