what inspires me

To wake up 

and see 

a baby brother 

checking if I'm okay

Then pick him up and start my day


To walk in 

on a hurricane of mess 

and a herd of five younger ones 

who all look up to me 



my mission is to succeed 

to be the best role model indeed 

to assist and help them create 

and envision their own futures like me
