Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break."
Once there were two women who never knew each other,
One you do not remember, the other you call Mother.
Two different lives shaped to make you one –
One became your guiding star. The other became your sun.
The first one gave you life, and the second taught you to live it.
The first gave you a need to love, the second was there to give it.
One gave you a nationality, the other gave you a name.
One gave you a talent, the other gave you aim.
One gave you emotions, the other calmed your fears.
One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried your tears.
One sought for you a home that she could not provide,
The other prayed for a child and her hope was not denied.
And now you ask me through your tears
The age old question, unanswered through the years.
Heredity or environment? Which are you a product of?
Neither, my darling, neither. Just two different kinds of love.
Not flesh of my flesh,
Nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously my own.
Don't forget for a single minute,
You grew not under my heart
But in it.
