The Daily Post

Daily Prompt: I Believe

For today’s prompt, tell us three things that you believe in your heart to be true. Tell us three things you believe in your heart to be false.

I believe this in my heart to be true…

My mama and I acting silly

My mama and I acting silly

Your Mother is always with you.
She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street.
She’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick and perfume that she wore.
She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well.
She’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day.
She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of a rainbow.
She is Christmas morning.
Your Mother lives inside your laughter.
She’s the place you came from, your first home, and she’s the map you follow with every step you take.
She’s your first love; your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, not space…not even death.

Fast forward a few thousand years and Ryan Gosling gets fired from George Clooney’s presidential campaign in the political drama The Ides of March. Even Homer Simpson is warned of his downfall on the Ides of March after being the Chosen One of the Stonecutters club. The Ides of March have a doom-filled reputation, but every month has its Ides. Let TIME be your soothsayer and explain exactly why you should, or shouldn’t, beware.
