Mother’s Desire


I wish I could’ve learned to love like you,
free from shards of fear imbedded in your heart
floating freely like an angel with wings of silver light.

I wish I could’ve learned to laugh like you,
straight from your belly coming out your eyes
flitting on the air like butterflies mating.

I wish I could’ve learned to walk like you,
head up and back straight,
immeasurable power resonating with each step you take.

I wish I could’ve learned to dance like you,
incorporating any mistakes as unique-to-you movements,
and gliding across the entire floor like you own it.

I wish I could’ve learned to live like you,
casting aside judgements and shame as rubbish
strewn alongside the road.

I wish I could’ve learned to Be like you.
It is every mother’s desire for her daughter
to surpass her.

Well done.
