She might have not taught me to walk,
But she taught me to walk straight.
She must have not taught me my first words,
But she taught me to speak my mind.
She taught me to be fearless,
She taught me to believe in myself.
She might have not given me birth,
She saved me from dying.
She might have not raised me up,
She gave me my personality.
She shaped my life,
She directed my thoughts.
She loved me and,
She taught me to love.
She might not be my mother,
She is my mentor.
This post is written for the Project 365 program at We Post Daily aimed at posting at least once a day, based on the prompts provided. I am the guest author for the month of February. The prompt for today is Mentor - Have you ever had a mentor? What was the greatest lesson you learned from him or her?
My mentor has pretty much been an essential part of my life. She has taught me pretty much everything I know.
