Did I ever tell you I wanted to change the world?

For my mother

You held me as a child
told me I was beautiful
could be whatever I wanted.

You let me hold you as an adolescent.
I learned the wisdom
that my reflection is
and I should hold fast
as tight as I can
every moment I can.

You let me go as an adult -
let me seek demons and fall
and come into my own
out on my own

And in all this,
I saw
a revolution
of love.

Did you know that I wanted to change the world?

Because you looked me in the eyes
and knew
I could.
