I decided to explore the theme of security with this poem. Growing up, so much of my comfort and security came from the nurturing presence of my mother. I have found that I can love myself and feel secure in myself because my mother loved me first. And so, in light of that sense of security, I tried to imagine what it could be like for children whose mothers have to work as well as fulfilling their role as a mother.
