A Mother’s Love

By IS

Your mother’s love is tender and soft
You’re her employee and she’s the boss
She gave you life and gives you love
Everlasting joy and never-ending hugs
 
She was there from the start
And you’ll be there until her end
She’s my mother, my sister,
And my favorite best friend

Always Had My Mother

By AH

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

My Family

By GB

Me & my girl, we’re having a baby, so now I have a family to provide for
The mission is to get outta here early, capture success, regain what I lost, and a whole lot more

Those two mean the world to me, an’ I’ll go to the end of the earth for them
One is my future wife, one is my soon to be son, and both the two are more valuable than any diamond, jewel, or gem

Also I refuse to let any harm come to them by any fool, joker, or clown
An’ I will never forget that—there is no way I’m going to let them down
‘Cause they give me strength, and without them I’m nothing
A husband & a father—now that’s something

So when I get home I’m getting on my hustle the legal way
No more streets for me ‘cause when I come home, I’m here to stay
Gotta get a nine to five, nothing but job hunting for me
Dope boy no more, working man is all I can be

I’m going to be in my son’s life, and no more having my girl up worrying & waiting by the phone for me to call an say I’m alright
I’m going to be the one taking him to school in the morning, at work in the day, and in the bed next to her at night

I’m just going to carry myself in a manner so manly
‘Cause there is no room for failure,
And I’m just going to be the man I’m supposed to be
For My Family

Mamma

By GB

 

The woman that raised me since birth,

the same woman that cleaned me after I’ve been playing in dirt.

She read me stories, then tucked me into bed,

and when I done wrong, she’d never hesitated to go across my head.

When I was ill or came down with a cold, she was my doctor,

and when I had a role in the school play, she was my director.

My mamma is great, Ma used to help me with my homework, and even a spelling test.

Then Ma would send me off to school with a smile & kiss,

and she’d say, “Don’t worry I know you’ll do your best.”

My mother’s cooking is amazing; everything is delicious and made with love.

I know there’s a God, ‘cause my mother is a gift from the heavens above.

Ma was there when that girl broke my heart,

 She’s the one that repaired it, and said, “This is just the start.”

I can go on & on about how good my mother is, but this poem will never be done.

So never take your mother for granted, you only get one.

A wise woman said that, “that’s why I can’t imagine life without her…

I just don’t wanna.”

She’s my rock, the leader of my support team,

some call her L, some call her auntie,

but I call her Mamma

Achievement

By CR

People think that accomplishing something

Is nothing to them

But to me

Accomplishing or achieving something

Means a lot to me

Cuz I was the dumb one

Of all the kids my mom had

But when I accomplish something

I feel proud
