To the mom who can't afford nice makeup to cover the dark circles, To the mom who can't afford to "fix" the ******* that now hang loose, To the mom who can't afford to remove the belly that remains, To the mom who can't afford to remove the wrinkles of worry from her face,
Your beauty is in the nights you've stayed awake holding a crying baby. Your beauty is how your strength has been drained so a child may thrive. Your beauty is shown in the belly split apart to grow a new life. Your beauty is in your heart that yearns to protect your child.
Your glory is the brightest in your scars.
As i see fellow mothers sacrifice their youth for their children, i think of this. The strength it takes to raise a child makes us beautiful. =)
💔💖 I'm so sorry my dear kids.. I no longer do fun things.. I feel your worries everytime your eye blinks.. I should teach you to fly and take risks.. But, me, myself is a bird who lost her wings.. Its not your fault that I have mood swings.. I don't have to be the best mother and walk on the strings.. I should make you happy with little, funny cheesy tricks.. You are my life .. I'm like a desert and you're my beautiful water springs.. I will give you all my care and love. And kiss you with my lips..
Before the Autumn reaps, don’t you believe that tree’s leaves would enjoy knowing the feeling of reaching and holding another’s branches? All the while these trees cannot conceive of such things.
I like to envision the brain of a dandelion as it tenderly caresses the faces of other dandelions. Before the wind sweeps away with their heads spreading each one’s likeness across distant lands. I bet they’d hold on to one another, these seeds, to the seeds of their lovers hoping to exist together upon the reaches of greener grass.
It’s not unlike me to marvel at what a miracle consciousness is. How lucky we are to share it despite all of its pains. All the while these dandelions might never see their own likenesses the way I can divine myself reflected back in my child’s smiling eyes. It’s such a blessing to conceive of such things. -six pm
Your belly Next to mine Smooth and soft It subtly moves As I gently touch it Caress it With tender admiration Innocent and sweet I listen to them Rejoice at the sight Of it ever so slightly flowing over the seam
My belly Next to yours I cringe, look away Try to hide it As it’s flawed It’s Not flat, Not nonexistent I’m afraid Of what they’ll say Should they catch A glimpse Of its imperfections
Yet without mine There’d be no yours It’s my womb That carried you It gave you shelter And protection A space to ripen and prepare It’s my belly That gave life to you And still I reprimand it Demand that it be What is expected
This tightness in my chest I can barely explain A closing in A bursting open Fear of not being enough Or maybe too much Paralleled by insurmountable Love A love that takes my breath away A love I never knew before A love that gives me hope And happiness And confidence A love that lets me forget I lose myself, floating softly Amidst clouds of warmth and joy Pride and serenity When suddenly my chest — How could I’ve let go Even just for a moment Thinking this bliss could exist Without the ever-looming Doubt that laces a mother’s mind
Hey Tink, I just want to be able to give you the world. I want to give you all of the opportunities I was never given. I want to hold you in my arms and protect you forever. I just want to see you smile every time I am in your presence. You, my dear are chosen, you are destined to be great. You will go on yo do incredible things, we just have to be strong and have patience. You are filled with such curiosity, creativity and compassion. My life before you was pretty simple, but life without you, I couldn’t imagine. I wish I could solve all of your problems before life throws them your way. But *** is impossible to avoid life’s obstacles so be sure to paint many rainbows for times when your skies are grey. Life is a balance of both good and bad and I witness this every day. I promise to always listen to you, even when I can’t take your pain away.
