This is where I complain.
 
Where life is not as I wish it to be.
 
Where people do as they please.
 
This is where I learn to breathe
 
because my breath is truly all that
 
I can control.
 
This is where I hurt and
 
this is where I let go.
 
This is where I remember
 
that my children are not mine
 
but belong to the universe.
 
This is where I sigh.

  1. Does every mother fight against that our children do not belong to us but to the universe? From the moment I found out I was pregnant they felt wholly and completely mine. And I also feel like I belong to my own mother.
