Thank You, Mom

Strength comes in many forms. 



Getting swept away with the current 

Trusting that smooth sailing is ahead. 



Knowing when to step up 

Knowing how to step back. 


Unconditional kindness;

Being a support system 

Despite feeling untethered from your own. 



In the face of blatant ignorance 

In the presence of unbridled hatred. 



When it all feels hopeless

When you lose sight of the horizon. 



Seeing clouds block the sun

Knowing that light will always shine through 


Strength comes in many forms. 

I’ve learned them all from you.  


—Thank you, Mom.
