A poem by Isabelle Sorrells
They are a celebration of many things;
Of how many years we have survived on this earth,
Or, more darkly for some, how many years closer we are to death.
A reminder of the glorious day we were brought into this world.
But I also think it should be a celebration,
At least an appreciation,
Of the incredible work, pain, and love our mothers gave to bring us here.
Thank you, mom.
