Motherless Mother’s Day

There comes a brief glimpse

Of a choice: Happiness or fear

 

When you have the option

Do you choose yourself?

 

How much can you risk?

How open can your heart stretch?

 

When tears flow freely

And you don’t know which are for the bitter and which for the sweet

 

How tight should you pull the thread

When you sew your broken pieces back together?

 

When you set out on a new path

In an unknown direction

 

When you let the dam breach

And the river unleashes

 

What poetry is written in your soul?
