motherhood hides deep inside our souls.
it waits, patiently, until we are ready
sometimes it finds us and sometimes we find it
but how we get there does not matter, when we embrace this gift
when we hold new life
that is when it matters.
i have found motherhood three times
and each time i have found myself.
my children have taught me from their hearts
from their newborn eyes they have showed me kindness in a new light
from their two year old touch,
soft fingers against my cheeks,
they have showed me patience
from their laughter that mirrors a powerful orchestra
i have found passion
for our future.
motherhood has brought me down a path
has led me to my destiny
a journey i am meant to embark on
motherhood is a discovery
the purest form of joy
motherhood is a smiling soul
and my soul is forever smiling.
