I see you, Dragon Mom

Updated: Mar 25


Today I see you with only love

commend you

for cherishing what you can

choosing to focus on

the little wins

on self care

the present moment

And when you cannot

I hold you, and the ache that greets you

most days before the morning sun

and plays tricks in the night


Forgive yourself, as I have forgiven you

all the envy born unwillingly

of others with their blind assumptions and blithe prophecies

sounding so simple, yet sickening

to a mind that lost the luxury of expectations

long ago


Today I honor you

and the rare strength

that solidified, scar-like

as you turn away from the mainstream and the milestones

and trust what a good day looks like

for you

for your loves

for now
