Mothering

kassie

Be gentle with yourself, always,

as a loving mother to your inner children

who have scraped knees and aching hearts,

and remember that true success in life

is not measured by the fewest mistakes.

Exercise compassion

for who you once were

a fleeting moment ago, or in another life,

and be gentle with yourself, always,

to teach what has been betrayed and cannot trust

how to love and hope and give again.
