Dear mother,

When I was a child,

my mother told me,

Anca, don’t be afraid

to let go of my hand

and go play with other kids.

 

When I finished high-school,

my mother told me,

Anca, don’t be afraid

to leave your hometown

and find a life for you out there, not in here.

 

When I became an adult,

my mother told me,

Anca, don’t be afraid

to live your own life,

to carve your own path,

to build your own reality.

 

My mother always told me,

Anca, don’t be afraid.

 

Dear mother, I am finally unafraid.
