Her First Steps

She pulls herself up and plants her feet firmly on the ground

Her face resembles fear because she doesn’t know just how strong she is

But I do

Maybe she will never see her power the way I do

But I will never quit trying to show her just how incredible she is

I could feel her power since the first time I felt her move within my womb

She’s still tip-toeing, but she’s gaining confidence

She builds up the courage and let’s go

I feel so proud

Yet so torn up

Because someday I know that she, too, will let go of me
