The Birthday Gift

On her thirteenth Birthday
the mother
decided to gift her teenage girl
a unique gift

I have dressed you
in satins and ribbons
but today you
are at a unique crossroad

going with that
you deserve 
an exceptional
gift

from hence now
You are no longer
 a child
but a young adult

You are free
to think
free to
 dream

let my 
gift
be your 
guiding light

 behold
my gift is only a guide
you are free to 
experience life

Be kind
but dont
let people 
use you

Trust
but 
don't 
be deceived

Love immensely
but dont
get trapped
 in its fold

when 
stuck
have the courage
to break free

Hope
but
don't get
unduly disappointed

Dream
but remember
it is only the seed
Take action

and when you
are a grown woman
a ripe
21

remember
a woman
 is like
Mother Earth

she was 
chosen
to gift life
and nourish

But don't forget
to
set
 boundaries

Just as 
you love your loved ones
don't forget to
love yourself

Make
 your own mistakes
but learn valuable lessons
 from them

Today i hold your hand and
 send you
on an exciting
journey

Be assured of one thing
always
Your mother will be with you till
Eternity
