Life’s Roles

Daughter first

Sister second

Years later wife

Mom times three

Cousin, niece, aunt

Friend and teacher between


Each role gives purpose

Brings responsibility

Delivers sorrow 

Causes growth

Provides joy

Creates life


 I look ahead

The future unseen

New roles yet to come

Hopeful to embrace each one

Through smiles, laughter, or tears

And continue down this path to becoming me
