I remember the day when you called me early in the morning saying that you wanted to divorce my dad.
I didn`t know then that I would not recognise my mother in the woman I met that day.
I could sit in the bathroom for hours. It was my way to escape.
Back then I used to be weak and small compared to you. You always were strong. I only saw you crying several times in all these years.
I felt panicked seeing your weakness.
One day you changed the rules and I had to adopt them. No explanation, no talk, nothing to help me understand what was going on.
I could not go away, could not stay. Sometimes I hated you for making me feel this way.
I was watching you cross highways without looking sideways and cars stopping at your feet. I followed you. I was afraid to lose you.
I was going crazy imitating your poses and breathing with the same speed just to catch a glimpse of what you were feeling.
I grew up. I don`t try to save you anymore. I learnt to trust in you and accept you - the whole of you.
Because I can`t live your life and can`t give you mine.
I just want you to know that every dream I pursue is to light a desire for life in you.
