A Personal Mother's Day Gift to Myself
Warning! This poem is all about ME. And I deserve to love myself enough to share my journey?
We all have our own trials and tribulations that we live through, and I have learned that many of us have more challenging times than happiness. That is until we reach a prime age and realize that whatever we went through, we did so to find the unique parts of ourselves that make us special. The pieces of ourselves that we have learned to adore, not scorn.
Therefore, on this Mother's Day 2022, this is what came to my mind. This poem is what flowed from my thoughts. I hope you like it!
Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful Moms!!! I hope you are loving yourself today!
A past due realization. An independent
Yes, I am COOL. As brisk as my frame points
To the west winds.
Always far from home. At least in my mind.
This is how my life trends. In the beginning,
Hearing every word uttered lowly. Seeing
Every side stare leering.
Made to be ashamed of my inward enigma
Mystery is not a demonic trait. It is lone
It brings forth many pains and then many
Finally, at the end you see the truth of you.
I mean, the truth of me.
Me…me…me…I finally can see. All the neglect
All the judgements sprayed throughout
My life useful.
I cannot even remember one single worthwhile
Word stated towards me.
Today, as I write my thoughts, the sad echoes
Are in the forgotten.
They were misconstrued in the land
Of all that is rotten.
I will admit it tore at my soul, but the
Woman I am now is self-love. WHOLE.
A Distinction defined.
It took only a little sprinkle of magical ME
Dust and time.
I am COOL. I am FINE. I am UNDEFINED
I am PERFECTLY PERFECTION. SUBLIME.
