'If you want to know
Who you were
Before you were an OTHER --
ASK YOUR MOTHER.'
Is the womb the promised land? Is it hell? Is it purgatory? It is the first world we enter. Or is it our last? What is it like in that noisy pool of water we are in? What do we hear? What does it feel like, smell like? When do we start sensing things? And what do we sense? DO we sense? Will we even know if we sense!? With a brain undeveloped, do we think at all? What do we think about in the womb? Do we wonder about the light at the end of the tunnel? The world beyond? The afterlife? Do we ever stop wondering all that...? EVER?!? Maybe we do - in the womb.
