Survival

5/30

 
To the mothers who give their kids names of Central American Rivers, dreams, adding extra letters… extra authenticity, to the ones who choose to be a chaotic current instead of pacific water, to the moms who decided to be hard instead of easy, the ones who wanted their daughters to dust themselves when they fall, the ones who knew your name would be hard to pronounce, but they knew you would survive, to you…madres, strong ones, I say thank you for giving me a name people would never comprehend but it makes me who I am.

    I like this tribute to strong mothers who gave their children uncommon names. Seemingly simple things can profoundly affect who we become. Thanks for the follow as well. Will check back and explore more. 🙂
