Mom

I came out of the womb

A mere spark

Ready to learn everything life has to offer

Not sure where to begin

Or how to go about it

But I thank God for my mother

She fueled my fire

Without hesitation

She loves me on the days when

I don't love myself

She shows me how to be 

Kind

Brave

Strong

and 

Open-minded

Through action.

When I grow up 

I hope to be half the woman

My mother is today.
