She is my light

     " You're too young to have a baby, you will never finish school,

Social life? Thats in the past. 

Breastfeeding will consume and destroy you,

Your relationship will never last.

 You gave life to a child who will grow up in a broken family.

How could you? You are selfish."

 

She wakes up with a smile, giving the purest hugs and kisses.

A belly filled with her favorite food.

She brought light into my heart. 

Although I gave birth to her, the moment I saw her eyes 

She brought me back to life. 

 

I am the luckiest women to be alive,

I may be young, and not the richest.

But my daughters health, and wellness 

is my drive.

Daily I strive to educate myself

to surpass assumptions

 

Everything I do is for her. 

I am her home,

I am her teacher,

I am her nurse,

I am her Mother,

I am inspired.
