And just for thought...
If I am a fool for believing in the good, than so be it.
When I look at my little girl, I can feel confident that I lived right.
I want to teach her that everyone has their own stories, own pain, own joys.
I hope she looks at others with respect for them as people,
that everyone holds their own fountain of happiness, their own cross to carry.
I hope she can see that everyone has a kindness even if one must dig to find it.
I want her to believe we all deserve a second chance,
that love comes in all shapes and sizes even if in some forms it is not obvious.
I want her to know that her own two feet are strong enough to hold up her world.
I want her to see that she never stands alone and that there is so much grace about her.
I want her to realize she is human, that asking for help is a sign of strength not weakness.
She controls her own destiny and I hope she never forgets that.
I want her to cherish her smile, share her spirit, that dances in her eyes.
Give of herself in a way that never harms her.
If I am a fool for believing in dreams so be it.
When I look at my daughter, I know dreams happen every day.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
