Our Miraculous Mother

Do you keep fear
locked tightly in a vault
made from apologies and goodbyes
so you can pretend
that there is a reason
to open your eyes
(The morning kisses your cheek
shocking you into reality)

I do not understand
how you live
with hope constantly thrashing about
begging for air
How do you allow
Sorrow to be your king
(dropping defenses
you have stubbornly kept in place
for so long
without any explanation)

with flawless symmetry
or with total chaos
just be free
in mind, body and soul
be patient with love
no matter how much it mystifies you
(Be content,
with the simple and complex alike
that we are all born out of love)
