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!

SUNSHINE

A past due realization. An independent

Satisfaction.


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,

Quietly observing.


Hearing every word uttered lowly. Seeing

Every side stare leering.


Made to be ashamed of my inward enigma

Shining clearly.


Mystery is not a demonic trait. It is lone

Distinction.


It brings forth many pains and then many

Wisdoms.


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

Was trivial.


All the judgements sprayed throughout

My life useful.


I cannot even remember one single worthwhile

Word stated towards me.


Now appreciated.


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

And REFINED.


I am PERFECTLY PERFECTION. SUBLIME.

SUNSHINE!
