A Mothers Letter

Our dreams may seem surreal, Entangling what we thought was

genuine clouding our vision with tears,

as splashes of emotion explode in fireworks

of color. 

Life takes us on twists and turns

Causing us to drop, That which we reach for. 

Our face leans to the right or to the left trying to gain some balance

But God's roadmap the Bible will help set your face straight

If you keep your eyes on the Son. 

After the trials bring the death of winter

Color bursts forth into new meaning. So, Shine your colors bright. 

To do this self portrait you must know what YOU look like.

This combines those life experiences and belief systems

of what your life has caused you to become...
