Tears of fear,
I have so much pain.
They trickle down, I simply cannot retain.
In between the shakes and sighs,
These emotions burst out my eyes.
Through the blur, I am gaining awareness to this painful process.
To its roots, I courageously begin to address.
I am conscious of the change occurring,
after uncovering layers and years of burying.
Literally ending a cycle, entering a new
Throughout the years I obviously grew
But I never felt these painful burning sensations before
Of emotions stuck in my back and legs so sore
Constant yet changing and shifting
I focused, and the veils began lifting
My childhood is ending, I’m beginning to realize
Morphing into a phase, I am learning to familiarize
Taking up responsibilities for years, I could ignore
The consequences of life, I cannot escape no more
I am at the gates of adulthood which I thought the worst
Though I must confess the ones of motherhood I fear the most
I am ready to take my first steps into the unknown
I’ll grow some strong roots from seeds that have been sown
I am forever humbled by the generosity of my parents and ancestors
I am thankful for true friendship
May I be constantly content with what I receive at any given date
And may I be granted the patience and wisdom to comprehend my state
