We challenge you today to write a poem in which something big and something small come together.
For some reason this challenge got me thinking of the first time a mother meets their child.
I didn’t know such happiness could be felt,
with all the damage that through my life I had been dealt.
I so big, compared to her small fragile body,
needing so much love and so much protection.
And yet in her small frame so much perfection.
As soon as I saw her I knew I’d love her forever
because she herself was a treasure.
With her, in my arms, everything felt right,
life seemed bright and there was a new reason to fight.
