Happy Mother’s Day

A poem that I should of wrote

centuries ago

I want this be the greatest art I ever created, I want this poem to make me famous, I want a rapper put this on their playlist, an interlude before they play a song about they mama

I should of wrote this centuries ago like when I was 18, when I graduated high school, I should of wrote it ,then because I wouldn’t have done it without you

I should it wrote this when I was 16 still in high school, because you supported everything I ever done from football to drama

I should of wrote this in middle school when I was being a young fool doing everything I thought was just so freaking cool, ma you kept me straight and you still love me with all my mistakes & even when I was being disrespectful you still ended up making me a plate

I should of wrote this when I was baby just because You blessed me to be the first son you ever created and bless me with beautiful genes and too be raised in this wonderful family

I was so hesitant to write this because, I didn’t know how to describe how perfect you are, your smile can make anyone day, your energy is the sun that wakes anyone up, your swag top notch no one in your class, You are generous and sweet that’s why the mosquitoes always around you, So confident yet so humble I think that’s why everyone loves you, Ma you are so courageous at times that’s why everyone follows you, if you ask me that’s royalty and you are the black queen that raised this king

I’m sorry for everything I done to you, that ever question my love towards you, Im just a fool at times, I can be ungrateful and such a brat, I wish it was a way to punish myself from all those times I argue back, & every time I lied in front of your face & times I said those hateful things I wish I can take it back, because you was the one that always put clothes on my back, when I ask for food, ma you made me a snack, You taught me what was whack & kept me out the streets to ensure I never did crack, You nurtured me and love me always the best way you could, Ma you raised me good cause now you have a man under the roof I’m not a boy no more, you cannot protect me no more, I protect you, you did best you could to raise your son without his father, you taught me things a man should of & put men in my life I could look up to

I love you soo much Ma I don’t know if I say it enough, I love you mommy no can ever take your throne, I haven’t bought you any gift on your birthday cause I feel like nothing I buy is even close to your worth, I been searching for awhile now but how a peasant like me can buy a gift for a queen like you, who deserve gold rings & real diamonds earrings

Even if you think I’m ignoring you I listen to you carefully your opinion what’s matter the most, your words slice through me carving me up to the man I am; your words are sweet & caring it turning me into the gentleman I am, & here I stand all because of you, I thank you

If someone ask your age I tell them 36 ,honestly I never counted because your beauty is timeless, and the love you gave me & my brother is boundless

Don’t worry The women I marry will never replace you and she can never surpass you, you will always be the number one woman in my life because you are the coolest mom ever
