When it came to listening
My mother taught me silence
If you are drowning their voice with yours
How will you hear them she asked
When it came to speaking
She said do it with commitment
Every word you say
Is your own responsibility
When it came to being
She said be tender and tough at once
You need to be vulnerable to live fully
But rough enough to survive it all
When it came to choosing
She asked me to be thankful
For the choices I had that
She never had the privilege of making
