What inspires me?
I find it when I look into those piercing emerald eyes
And those cheekbones that could win a prize.
Or the curly hair that we both share.
She has patience that I could never bear,
And gains strength from her resilience.
Not to mention her independence is pure brilliance.
I’m left amazed at her work ethic.
She provides me a safe haven that leaves me feeling homesick.
But no matter where I am, she’s my biggest encourager.
So my biggest inspiration?
Mom, is simply what I call her.
