Beautiful my mother, Yemaya! Thank you for being there during the worst moments of my life and giving me the strength to continue, the courage to withstand what comes my way, and the understanding of a mother as you are to me. There are no words to describe the way I feel about this Orisha, my mother Yemaya. You are everything to me, before my head, and you hold the place in my heart. Iyami, you are my strength, you are my sword against those that wish my harm, Yemaya you are the one who has given me reason to continue living and to continue this journey of life. The dark times when I can’t take it anymore, when I just ask for peace through death and for my suffering to end; the suffering I live through everyday that only you know, MAMI YOU GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO CONTINUE, THROUGH YOUR WISDOM AND THROUGH YOUR LOVE YOU GIVE ME THE MOTIVE TO CONTINUE TO LIVE, TO KEEP GOING AND GIVE ME THE HOPE FOR A BETTER TOMORROW!!! THANK YOU MAMA, MAFEREFUN YEMAYA TODOS LOS DIAS DE MI VIDA! BAJO LA CABEZA EN RESPETO A TI MI MADRE, TU QUE ME DAS LA FUERZAS, TU QUE ERES MI CORAZON, TE AMOOOOOOOOOOOO! OMIOOOOOO YEMAYA!!!
