Born a Mother, A Poem To Celebrate Mother's Day
Hello Beautiful Gem,
This month to celebrate mother's day I am sharing the poem I wrote after my daughter Lila Sky was born. I have been writing since childhood and studied screenwriting in art school and also published a few books that I will soon relaunch here in this shop.
Born a Mother
I was born the day you were born
That's when my heart began to beat
Love gives life and we live searching to feel alive through love
My mother used to say that she loved me unconditionally
And that I would only know what that was, on the day of your birth
The day that you were born a piece of me died
The "I" that cared for "I" alone
The "I" that didn't know how to truly love
You see, I had this idea, this illusion of what love was...
I thought it was somewhere outside
A possession to be won, to give and take
I thought that it only belonged to some and came with conditions and a manual
I was blind to see that love is our birthright
That life is born out of love
The day you were born, you gave birth to the unborn me
The mother in the I, that is love to all of life.
Hope you enjoyed reading this gem and that it brings you warmth and healing!
