To My Mother. 6/18/14

Tonight you said something
I never thought I'd hear from you 
Something I didn't ask for
But receive with humility 

I once wrote
About how badly
I needed 
Your acceptance
So freely and 
Unwaveringly given
To others
But denied me
But I see now... 
It wasn't out of favoritism
Or because your
Heart lacked the love
I felt from you when 
I was younger. 

It's harder to accept
When you finally realize
You weren't worthy of it 
And won't be worthy of it
Until you're able
To prove yourself
And now that I'm getting 
To that point
I find myself 
Almost fearing
That moment
