Following Suit

Whenever I get to know someone who seems to be everything that this world is not, I cannot help but wish to get to know their mom as well.

It is the selfless way you move

Through this unkind world

That says about the kind of woman

Your mother must have been;

Someone who engulfed flames,

But refused to sip on waterfalls

Until you had rivers of your own

Flowing through your backyard!


Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, motherly sisters, motherly fathers, and to anyone who’s like a mother to someone! Your ability to love selflessly is one of the few things that make the world go round.
