My Equator...The Center Of The World

You are the meaning of strength
at its highest peak.
You have courage
when the rest of us are weak.
You inspire me
to live for the now
and to never give up
because you don't know how.
I've learned from you
why family comes first.
It's because when you need them,
they're there when you hurt.
No matter the pain,
it all hurts the same.
And family you can count on
to always remain.
When the road gets rocky,
you seem to take each bump
and walk over them smoothly,
hump after hump.
You have no idea
about the effect you've made,
and with the lessons I've learned
my life's made a change.
Not just a change
but also a growth.
From an immature child
to a young woman with hope.

My niece-in-law was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. She was transferred from the hospital to hospice today and may not be here for Christmas this year. She has been in my family for 21 years. She is only 48 years old. This poem exemplifies her to me. And I would like to dedicate it to her.

I'm a person who has a big heart and always wants to read a poem. I am always inspired when I read any kind of poetry, and I hope someday I will be the one who can inspire others too.
