What are the Odds of a Trifecta?
They were the first set of multiples in our family for a few years, seven to be exact. We are a family of many multiples. But triplets, concieved the good old fashioned way? The first.
She may be one of three, but, she is an individual. She may look like them, but she stands out in a crowd.
The odds of conceiving triplets naturally is about 1 in 8,000 births for fraternal, 1 in 62,500 for identical - give or take a couple. It has been said that there has been a 400% increase in triplets over the last 20 years.
Flowers. There must always be flowers to color my world. I dedicate this picture to @Kalemandra, who colors my world every single day!
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
