I am the silent medal of respect
Hanging invisible on my mother’s neck
Tucked in and kept safe and warm against her heart
You’ll know not her good deeds until you see my shine

I am as patient as the carpet
Stepped on because I’m grounded
Lied on when times are hard
But through all that, I understand

I am a scrambled tower of fear
A vessel of confusion and surprise
Only the brave can navigate my soul
But the view at the height of me is priceless

I am as honest as clear glass
Shine me your light and I’ll let it brighten someone’s day
Tell me your pains and I’ll speak for you
It’s a cold world but I’ll only let the beauty in.
