Without You

I kept saying

What am I going to do

Left incapacitated I began to live

Interpreting the world

Found focus and motivation

To keep going

Without you.


I kept thinking

I can do it

Travel and live across the world

Learn a new language

Be at the top of my class

Get into an Ivy League

Learn that I am responsible for my own life

Know that everything I do is for a bigger purpose

Discover my truths

But never moving forward

Without you, Mom.
