Growing Pains

I don't know, God.
This is craziness,
this life into which
you've called me,
these continual twists & turns
through which you rebirth me.
I'm uncertain
about what it all is,
about how I'm doing
...and I'm still processing
life from three "contractions" ago,
still growing into myself in this space.
Good Lord! (I mean that in both senses.)
Should I pray to
catch up with you
in this birth experience,
or pray for peace in knowing
that you're ahead of me in the curves
beckoning through each twist and change?
