look in the mirror
appreciate your beauty
understand what lies beneath your surface.
the material you are in nor the makeup brand on your skin,
the brand of shoes on your feet or even
how pretty you look on a scale of one to 10.
it’s your soul that outshines,
outlives, outer appearances.
we age, we gain a few grey hairs, wrinkles scatter around our face
our appearance always changes.
your soul stays forever
worth more then a pot of gold.
*wrote this thinking of my mom.
My mom a strong women of faith,
full of glory showing me that the lord is the only relationship you need.
She made me the person I am today even if she disagrees.
She has taught me that getting on your knees is much more
powerful than any other thing.
She is stronger than she knows or thinks.
At times I see the thoughts filling her head,
telling her she is weak,
questioning herself I’m I doing the best a mother could be?
but what I see
is a mother striving to be the best mother she knows how to be.
Forgiving those who hurt her,
laughing without worrying about the future
and living for today because tomorrow is not promised.
She’s my favorite mother and warrior.
