For the Mothers

for the time you spent caring, nurturing, supporting

for the many compliments and corrections you lent

for the love you share in sacrifice for me

for the energy you exert way pass your point of exhaustion

and for the the affirmations, confirmations, and conversations you’ve given

that have established my womanhood today

yes, for this, I say Thank You.

the job isn’t always easy but you wear it well

I’m difficult to deal with but you never stop testing me

you are exactly what a mother should be

no, you didn’t mother the world

but you definitely influenced me

from a deep deep place of reverance gratitude and admiration

Happy Mother’s Day
