I Am My Mother

“I Am My Mother”

I am my mother

She’s a part of me

My courageous spirit

The best I can be

She traveled a twisted, rocky road.

No loving spouse to lighten the load.

In a concrete city with skies of gray

Three hungry mouths to feed each day

She did her best, the best she could.

Sometimes wrong, sometimes times good.

She never gave up, never gave in.

Her spirit burns from deep within.

Her inner strength is beyond compare

Passed to me so that I could dare

To explore new worlds

Be unafraid

To search for a sunset

That will never fade

I am my mother.

She’s a part of me.

My courageous spirit

Is the best I can be.
