as even though my heart feels
like a small delicate flower
crushed under two innocent unaware
pairs of children's tiny feet
^^^ this is what i want my future to have for my daughters i want them to email me cards of pictures of how they have changed their lives and they have both a career and a family so happy in their lives...this part of the poem nearly put me to tears!
This is a powerful piece Jenni- I can relate to this piece.. the power in unveiling the strength to your mother of how you can overcome and be stronger from the pain and anguish of a broken heart.. the piece is in a very pretty format which I truly adore... truly awesome piece with a powerful message!
Oh my goodness... I am in tears, this is such a powerful poem Jenni! What strength you have, what a journey this whole poem is, and I know your mom would be proud, being able to overcome and remind her you are the daughter who won't waste a second mourning, crying, for that time spent in pain. It isn't worth it because I know and your mom knows you can stand tall again.
You are indeed a very strong person! I know if someone put me through such a heartbreak, I'd be devastated and a complete mess. Yet you have become stronger, not letting them get the best of you & moving on. To know you're making someone proud by standing up for yourself is the most beautiful thing! You realize that it's not worth it, it's not worth your time, you could be so much happier. You are a gorgeous person inside & out :) Love this.
Jenni, I know I hardly read other peoples work, yet alone comment on it, I love this piece. From an up bringing like mine I can relate. Raised that tears are for the weak and that if you do cry its has to he worth it. Just remember, those who are worth crying for will do what they can to make sure you don't.
The part that got me the most was where you separated
It just gripped me because although you probably felt like crying inside you never did. A lot of people can relate to this including me as we hold a lot in as a society for fear of being 'different'.
