Always Had My Mother


Dedicated To My Moms

I seen my mother go through withdrawals
I smelled the heroin coming out of her pores

There was days I had nothing
There was nights I had nothing
But my mother

We used to pray 4 better days
Momma always made a way

There was times I didn’t have no food
There was times I didn’t have fresh shoes
But I had my mother

Momma always held strong
She never worried that my father was long gone
There was times I couldn’t get love from my own kind
There was moments that I second guessed my own friends
But I always had my mother


  1. AH, I really liked the way you wrote this. I can tell you appreciate your mom’s attempt to care for you even if the food was not always there or your dad was not there either.

  2. This is a very moving poem. I am proud of the writer! Thank you!

  3. Such a powerful poem, AH. Your mother should be proud of the amazing writer and wonderful person that you’ve become. I’m so glad you shared this.
