Happy Valentine’s Day

Even when I feel as though I am drowning, I recognize how blessed that I am to have amazing people in my life who would do anything for me. With today being Valentine’s Day, I thought that it was only appropriate to acknowledge the warrior of my life, which is my beautiful mother. 

My mom means everything to me, and is the strongest person I have ever known. She has been put through more in life than most, but even through the tears, she finds a way to get back on her feet. 

This is probably one of my favorite poems that I have ever gifted her, and I thought that it was incredibly fitting to share it with you all. Since today is a day of love, I ask that you reach out to someone you love and tell them just how much you care about them. Like I wrote in the poem, life is constantly changing, and the one of the hardest feelings to live with is regret. 

Poem:

The world is a scary place,

Constantly changing,

Constantly evolving,

Shifting from one moment to the next

As if the previous one

Was merely a beholder

Of time. 

I know that the universe 

Has plagued you with pain,

And has allowed grief

To sleep beside you at night. 

You don’t deserve

The selfishness of your heart

That abuses you,

Wrapping you in agony. 

The bruises on your soul

Never should have been there in

The first place, 

and I will walk through hell

To justify that.

But mom,

my beautiful,

Brave,

Mother,

The universe has not won

The war. 

You have. 

-never forget the fires you have put out
