MY NORTH STAR: AN ORIGINAL POEM BY ANTHONY AVINA

In honor of Mother’s Day, I’d like to share this poem I wrote for my own mother, Christina Avina. She has been a constant source of love, support and strength in my life, and is one of my best friends in the whole world. We are co-founders of our own paranormal podcast and investigative group known as Phenomenon Paranormal, and she has been a huge source of inspiration not only for my work in this field but in my writing career as well. Mom, I love you with all my heart. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me in my life, and for giving me the strength to move forward each and every day in the face of all that has been thrown in our path. I am fortunate to have had you in my life, and I look forward to what our future will bring us. I love you mucho mucho, to the moon and back.

Love,

Anthony

My North Star

Through gnarled branches and scarred trees,

Past the edges of the growing forest and raging wind,

I see your light shining against the breeze, 

My North Star.


Over looming hills and under thrashing seas,

Across an ocean in search of me,

You find me with your smile of warmth,

My North Star.


Against all odds from childhood and beyond,

From nights of terror to pain from within,

You have guided the ship that is my life,

My North Star.


A piercing sword in the dark,

Repelling all that would wound my body and soul,

You clash against the crushing weight of negativity,

My North Star.


The embodiment of hope and love in a world of sadness,

You become the messenger of forgotten gods and missing heroes,

A towering warrior and loving mother sharing one body,

My North Star.


Facing the future by shedding the past,

Becoming the symbol of light against the dark,

You hold me in your motherly arms with love and heart,

My North Star.
