She wore masacara to hide her fears
She had to be strong and suppress tears
She wore the bangles to remind herself
that her wings were clamped with threats
She adorned herself with a necklace
that would tame her into calmness
Around her head she draped the silk
and taught herself to live with guilt
She wore a pair of silvery anklets
which found peace in diving into sacrifices

Yet they called her a weakling
A burdensome liability than a human being
Her calmness was mistaken for fragility
For no reason she was made to feel guilty
Rendered to be blamed as a scapegoat
Her sacrifices narrated hypocritical anecdotes

A breath of freedom she wished to embrace
We bothered her with expectations of st...

Mother came to visit me today!
The excitement was too real
Couldn’t help but to be overwhelmed with such joy.
That not so subtle embrace of me running to wrap my arms around you, give you those million kisses, hold your hand every so tightly as if I hadn’t seen you in years. I was loving every moment. That warm blanket of happiness that surrounds me is like no other. Could this moment last a lifetime? To be in the presence of my best friend in my darkest, weakest,  most vulnerable stage in my life, is such a blessing. You’ve just lifted years of pain and silent suffering all in such a brief moment. This happiness is surreal. This feeling is what I have been searching for at the bottom of eve...

Back to square one.... One visit home and this hostel seems so strange once again.
    These sudden splurges of missing that little corner of my house where I could hear my mom's soul alive in action... Working on something or the other as her bangles clinked of her presence....
And somehow that was enough...
Her being there....
As her heart would spread all over our house painting it red as to welcome those evening birds to leave behind some of the crumbs of happiness they garnered throughout the day for us to feed upon.
Her highness...
My mother 💟

Mama, papa, help me get home
I’m far away from where I belong
Mama, papa, I found me a witch
A little old lady with a crystal ball
She told me my future, she said it was dark, with a par of black orbits watching from afar
Mama, papa, help me get home
The little old witch took me to met her old pal
The thing was a werewolf, that nasty old man, he told me my future was resting on quick sand.
Mama, papa, i’m finally home
Where is my people? Whom moved my crown?
I went to the throne room, he came after me, I sat on a chair, he gave me a cup, a drank without thinking....

Mama, papa, he has dark orbits that watch me from afar

Daddy drives me in his car,
To the hills, very far.
We eat candies sweet and sour,
While watching the movie, star wars.
We also catch fireflies in a jar,
I am mamma's little rock star.

For nine months in her womb she protected you,
She bore unbearable pain when you were due.

She quit her job, so you got undivided attention,
Her career aspirations, to no one did she ever mention.

As you ate the last slice of her favourite cake, she ate dry bread,
She spent sleepless nights, as she rocked the sick you to sleep instead.

When you grew old and your wants increased,
She did odd jobs, long working hours to fulfill your needs

That dress she had so liked for herself, she never bought,
But fulfilled your each wish, without a second thought.

To stop by and acknowledge her selflessness, you never did bother,
Yet she quitely continued to give, as she called herself your 'Mother...

Why everytime ability of girl is compared to a boy... Why she can't be a hero of her own world. Why everytime a girl has yo proved her self till the end of her life still she will not get respect like a boy. In one side we are worship and admire small girls, on the other hand  same girl is compared to a boy and getting restriction from the same society.... Why always we have to prove.....

In search of me ❤️

Hi!! I’m Kate-Lynn, 23 from Canada.
I am currently a full-time mom to a 1 year old girl! So my world has gotten a little busy! But I have enough down time to write and make some new friends.

I have two diplomas in Art (Illlustration and Graphic Design) I haven’t pursued it much due to life events! But I'm slowly getting back into it, I'll be teaching art to a few disabled people so I'm looking forward to that!

My family is the most important thing to me. I have my husband, dog and my little girl.

I love animals, (especially dogs) I currently have a dog. She is a German Shepherd crossed with a Shiba Inu! Other animals I love include; penguins, white tigers, elephants, and Pandas.

I love ...

Recuerdo el perfume que anunciaba tu llegada, recuerdo aún ese sentimiento y la emoción que me embargaba.

Nadie me previno y yo no imaginaba, que nunca había amado y estoy tan enamorada.

No sé explicarme, no tengo argumentos,
que pueda yo escribir para que entiendas este sentimiento.
Por el momento aún puedo llevarte cerca de mi pecho,
Un día te veré alejarte  y eso es un hecho.
Hasta ese entonces siéntete segura, que mamá te ama y quiere con locura. 😍😘🤰🤱

Madre mía,

Guerrera incansable, luchadora constante, paciente, amorosa, trabajadora, quien por sus manos pasa las mejores creaciones, las mejores comidas.

Jueza de ley, pero el roble en nuestro hogar.
Mamá, somos diferentes, pero nos une el lazo más grande del mundo y para mí, no existe lugar más tranquilo que estar ahí en tu regazo, no hay nada que me impaciente más que llegar a casa y que no estés.

Mami, sé que soy su orgullo, me ves con ojos llenos de amor.  Admiro la tenacidad con la que no buscas pelear, la humildad que tienes, el siempre dejar el ego atrás para no hacer problemas y sobre todo tú fe.
Tienes tu mirada fija en donde camino, en que no me encuentre con nada que me haga ...

MADE WITH LOVE

Sou uma mãe recém-nascida. Sou outra pessoa que não eu, que voltou a nascer, ao mesmo tempo que ela. Quando a vi sair de dentro de mim foi como se renascesse e nascesse de novo, a par com ela. Ela, tão desprotegida e indefesa; e eu, carregada de amor e repleta de medos desconhecidos por não ter sido nenhuma vez mãe, até ali, até àquele momento. No primeiro segundo senti-a junto ao meu peito, pele com pele, e que momento único, que momento inesquecível, eu e a minha filha ali, uma para a outra como se dali resultasse um pacto eterno.
E foi. E cada dia que passa me sinto crescer com ela, e ela a crescer comigo, e que gratificante que é. O melhor do mundo saiu de mim, e com ela nasci eu, uma no...

Dear Mom.

You held me for 9 months.
I'll never know the pain you went through.
Even through my sisters and brothers.
I know we are greatful.
Thank you everyday for asking if my stomach is full.
Whenever we have a chance.
Just know your heart toward me.
Is the warmth that will forever last.

    You are no longer here
    Your body
    Only ash now
    And here I sit
    In the sapphire serendipity
    Of you light
    Wearing my halted halo
    Grateful
    For the memories
    That keep you
    Grounded with me
    On this earth.       Janine

The day you started growing in my womb , I had intuition that you will be different from the world . And story of your rebirth being premature after 20 mins CPR says it all. Everyone in hospital , even your doctors told that you have only 10% chances of living but I confronted them that you are my lioness and born fighter . And see today you are out from ventilator after fighting for your life . Thank you god for blessing me with a warrior , fighter, an angel and cute little princess . Just need little more blessings for her healing so that I can see her without all the wires , no machines attached .

Maa...
The small word but having lots of emotion,lots of love, and so much of care..
Whenever this word comes out..its not just a word but the echelon of blessing...
When nobody is trusting your effort then there is just a one person who has pure certitude towards you..
When you're going through hard times , there's just one person who makes all thing simpler for you..
I never said this but always wanted to ..
.......THANK YOU MAA .......
If i dont call you that doesn't mean that i don't love you or forget everything you did for me..
Its just that i get emotional whenever i call you and i don't want you know that..and getting tensed up in thinking of am i fine or not?....BECAUSE YOU MEAN MY W...
