" A writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, or because everything she does is golden. A writer is a writer because, even though there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway." - Junot Diaz

" Overnight Success is almost a myth. Half of this industry is luck, and half is the refusal to quit" - Victoria Schwab

Have you ever looked to someone, who you can trust?

Have you ever heard a voice that is calming to your ears?

Have you ever seen somebody in which you know as your hero?

This trusting, calming hero is known as my mom. 

As the person who first held me in her arms, and made feel safe in an instant. 

Who knows me more that any person in the world, or any friend that I will ever have.

Mom, you are the one I look to. You are my example, my reason for being, and the beat in my heart.

The one I know will always be there for me, no matter how hard I try to push her away.

The One I Look To for help, comfort, love, hope and trust.

The one I will always love

Mom, You Are The One I Look To

The author's comments:

My mom has always been a person I can trust. She is strong and adventourous, but loving and kind - hearted. I am confident in my writing, and I hope someday I can share it with the whole world.
