A poem in 8 GIFs.

Iโ€™m so delighted to share this animated version of (M)other, a poem by Bosnian-Canadian writer Sanita Fejziฤ‡ (@sanita.fejzic) , and shortlisted for the CBC Poetry Prize. You can watch the animation in pieces here or to watch it uninterrupted follow the link in Sanitaโ€™s bio. โœจโœจโœจโœจโœจโœจโœจโœจโœจโœจโœจโœจ About (M)other, text by Sanita Fejziฤ‡: "On your birth certificate my name fills the space of 'father/other parent.' I am your other mother, your (m)other, but there was only room for one on the page." It hasn't always been easy confronting teachers, school principals and others, who look for a father even though they know my son only has moms. This poem is a love letter to my son, a gift of hope and resilience for all LGBTQ families deserving of dignity and understanding.

Just living in the now ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚

My Sagittarius sun and Cancer moon are fighting it out before everything changes. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ I like newness, I miss everything forever. Iโ€™m ready for change, Iโ€™m afraid Iโ€™ll change. Iโ€™m waiting it out impatiently, Iโ€™m giving myself permission to spend some time in my sadness, eating cake at 4am, binge watching tv dramas, listening to sad songs on repeat and going to the corner store in my bathrobe. Itโ€™s not graceful but itโ€™s comfortable. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– ps. Thank you for the kind words and well wishes, close and far, IRL and URL. ILYSMโค๏ธ
