Mother

How can I tell you that you have shaped every part of who I am?

How could you possibly know that I am who I am because of you?

That I have watched your every move since the day that I was born.

That every word you say reaches a part of me that no one else can touch.

A mother's job is the largest burden one can carry. 

I am who I am because of you...

 

I do not want to be anything like you.

Me
My family
