my unborn teenage daughter

i’ll make sure
she knows
that she can always
confide in me
that i will be
her sounding board
whatever the situation
may be

i’ll make sure
she’s mindful
of other people’s
spirits
so that when others
are masking
their pains
she will hear it

i’ll teach her
to be thankful
for other people’s
generosity
tell her it’s good
to feed her
curiosities

i’ll teach her
to stand up
against mean-spirited
cruelness
tell her
not to be afraid
to look
a little foolish

i’ll tell her
that words
can hurt
and hearts
can ache
i’ll tell her
to be good
for goodness’ sake

i am

i am a searcher
a looker for light
in the shadowed corners
of a dark night

i am a giver
a bringer of hope
to anyone in need
at the end of their rope

i am a daughter
and idealist, a friend
a product of my memories
from beginning to end

i am a lover
affectionate and kind
with a comforting way
of easing your mind

i am a dreamer
a wanderer at heart
with visions of a journey
i have yet to start
