The Path

In the beginning the path is smooth

Unencumbered, no burden

Heart and words gave only truth

Time moves on

I beg it slow

Masks removed

Thy wrinkles show

Undulating journey

Now tired and worn

The road gets bumpier

We gaze forlorn

The trail walked

cracks were showing

The lights were on

Highlighting the path of knowing

A pilgrimage

No matter,

parts were broken

Life is an lesson

Learn and live

Leave no words unspoken

Teach me about life

Did you feel me move

I’m playing in your tummy

I am coming very soon

I can’t wait to meet you mummy

*

Daddy lay your hands on me

Gently touch mummy’s tummy

I will be your most precious human

irreplaceable, no amount of money

*

I’m coming into your world

I’ll be here very soon

I’ll shine brighter than all the stars

More brilliant than the fullest moon

*

Nine months inside your body

I’ve listened to your heartbeat

dear mummy, one day soon

We are really going to meet

*

I picked myself a mummy

I picked myself a daddy

I found two people to comfort me,

Wipe my button nose, when it’s runny

*

I will be your adored little girl

No longer just a dream

You will look at me with love

Gentle words and eyes agleam

*

I cannot wait to see your face

I cannot wait to feel your touch

Swaddle me with your love

There will never be too much

*

What color will my eyes be

Blue, brown, or green

I’m going to have the prettiest eyes

That you both have ever seen

*

Do you promise to kiss me every night

on my perfect lips and nose,

Do you promise to play with me,

count my little fingers and toes

*

This little piggy,

Daddy can we play

Be by my side always

Never go away

*

I want to have bubble baths

I want to cuddle a teddy bear

but most of all I just want

my mum and dad to always be there

*

Teach me about this thing called life

I want to do everything

Good,

wondrous

learn from all the strife

*

Teach me how to count

Teach me how to cook

Teach me the alphabet

And how to read a book

*

Lets pick flowers

Cuddle for hours

Teach me kindness

So my morals are the finest

*

Teach me to be like you two

*

We will run in puddles

Play in the rain

Eat ice cream

Again and again

*

I have so much to look forward to

I love you both so much

My best day is yet to come

When I feel your loving touch

💗💗💗💗

Magic set free

We once were magic

We set it free

Like a bird in an open cage

It flew away, we let it be

*

*

Where will it go

Where will it land

Can we get it back

Will you again hold my hand

*

*

Fly back to us

through the air

Like magic again

Release my despair

*

*

Look after my heart

Please restore my hurt soul

Let’s learn the same language

Again us together can be whole

*

*

Teach me to trust again

Surrender the evil sting

Catch me if I fall

Make my heart sing

*

*

Let me believe

In your virtuous being

Honourable, righteous

Inspiration foreseeing

*

*

Give me reason to believe

And you will again hold my heart

❤️

*

*

Reflect

Smell the flower,

Smell the sweet

Take my heart

Make me complete

.

.

The sweet smell of flowers

passion penetrates the air

Offers of love

Heart and soul laid bare

.

.

We align

we connect

Breathe in air

We reflect

.

.

Heart over head

It does rule

Truth is belief

I am nobody’s fool

.

.

Reflect

Be nobodies fool

Sweet

A letter to his teacher – I wish you could see him now

This is a repost from Chaotic Shapes. Please watch the video.

School is not a measure of a persons success.

The grades a child receives in school does not define the child or his journey into adult hood, their passion does,.

Follow your heart, your instinct and trust.

As in this video these parents are told that their child is not very bright. I had the same experience when my son was in grade 3. Aged approximately seven or eight years old. The teacher said to his father and myself, just face it, the facts are your son is not very bright and he will struggle in life. I was shocked. She categorized my son at the age of eight years old. She made an opinion of my son and classified him as having no future. She defined him by his grades and made the decision that this was how he would perform in life. (A struggle) Thank God that we did not believe in her thoughts or her unvalidated opinion on our son. I feel sad at the thought of how many children’s lives she may have impacted on.

I felt let down by the system and the system did let my son and us down.

We took him to another school. They ( the teachers) believed in him.

As it turns out the classroom was not the best learning platform for him. Life and experience was. He is successful, he is intelligent, he is wise, he can recite facts that blow his audience away, he is funny, hilarious in fact. He is kind, compassionate, he is a hard worker and he is highly respected by his employer, his work colleagues, his peers and friends. He is passionate about life and is following his passion, he is making his mark on the world. He is amazing.

He is my son and I am proud.

I still remember that teacher.

A letter to the teacher

Dear Teacher,

You probably wouldn’t remember my family. I personally have never forgotten you. My beautiful son would not remember you either I am happy to say because we did not allow you to impact on his life.

Thirteen years ago you defined my son. An 8 year old who you blatantly classified as not very smart. I do not know if you were having a bad day, or that is your thoughts on children who learn through different processes, but, shame on your intolerance.

We all have different strengths and weakness, your own weakness did present itself very loudly that day.

However I do hope you found your way to kinder teaching methods, empathy and tolerance.

As it turns out you did us a favor, we removed our son from that school, where he went on to learn in healthier environment where he thrived and became the confident, capable young man he is today. You never took his power or ours.

If by some small chance you read this, I wish, I wish you could see him today.

Furthermore, I would like to say to you “I hope you found peace of mind and heart in your world”

Kind regards

A Proud Mum
