a mother's beauty

the other day, my mom came home
as the most beautiful silhouetted figure 



at first glance, i said




"mom! you're so beautiful today!"

with her super rosey cheeks
and her shadowy eyes 
and full, voluminous hair


in that moment,
she was everything i wanted to be as a woman

beauty unfazed by a difficult day's work
with all the charm and glow still in her face 






but then she came into the light


and i saw what adulthood had to offer 














what could i say?

the worst thing possible

"Nevermind."




it wasn't the best night for us





in the end, and in the middle too, 
i guess there's a unique charm about getting old(er)

i don't know how many roses stay in your cheeks,
or if your hair keeps its shape

but i do know that even when my mom looks like a gorilla
i only see good things
