sometimes I am My Mother’s Daughter
today is one of those days
It’s Valentine’s Day
all day
and I find myself wearing pink
and the heart covered socks
that my mother gave me
long ago
I wear ‘em once a year
on Valentine’s Day
might as well
and as long as I gave into pink
and socks with hearts
I put on lipstick too
yes, my mother would approve
my oldest son is wearing black today
I let him
I sorta wanted to wear black too
the rebel in me
even though it’s not showing
on the outside
it’s there
underneath the pink
