mom

You showed me kindness. 

You showed me patience. 

I was bullied 

for writing how I felt. 

I was ashamed of who I was. 

 

I broke. 

I bent. 

I fell. 

So deep 

until I couldn’t feel a feather tickling me. 

 

Mom. 

You saved me. 

Mom. 

You gave me hope. 

Mom. 

I am me 

because you are you. 

 

Night after night 

i came crying to you. 

Write

you said. 

Write it all out. 

You saved me. 

you saved me.
