A functioning Cog

I haven't been obsessed with an opening refrain to a song like this in years. I love being pregnant because there is no time that I'm more clear on what I might be serving beyond me. If someone could send me a memo for the machine I'm a part of outside of motherhood I would be super appreciative!

"I was raised up believing I was somehow unique
like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes
unique in each way you can see;
and now after some thinking,
I'd say I'd rather be
a functioning cog in some great machinery
serving something beyond me.

But I don't know I don't know what that would be."
