Not-Mother’s Day

To those who were not called. I salute you.

Loving women giving life to everyone around them

You hear the voices, and not only on Mother’s day

“So…. When are you going to start having kids?”

And, “it’s selfish not share yourself with a family.”

Please forgive them. They don’t know that

you have chosen the world as your family.

Seeing and loving, beyond blood lines.

We need you, badly. You are the gypsies, the seekers,

The ones whose zest for life in all its colours brightens our sky.

It is a beautiful thing, and sacred, To be a mom.

It is a beautiful thing, and sacred, To not be.
