You are here. You have enough. You are empowered to prioritize your time, protect your energy and be present.
You talked about how you planned to give me the biggest hug when we met and how you hated the title “stepmother,” and that you rather call me your “bonus mom.”
you are made of flesh, bone and stars
just like the rest of us
I know exactly what to say
because I’m speaking to myself
as I gaze into the eyes of another soul
the soul of my sister
I wish you would believe in yourself
the way you believe in him
You’re gonna figure it out and be just fine.
Own who and what you are because it’s a waste of time to hide your shine.
