An Ode To The Glory Of Motherhood - Poem by Stacey Gibbs

Play Poem Video

The beginning of a newly found life
A radiantly, beautiful soon-to-be mother
A face that radiates beauty, grace, and glows
Now turned to the pains of labor
Breathing, screaming, and pushing out the baby child
A child that she loves
The father cries in jubilation

She stays at home as a housewife
With the bright-eyed Christopher
They have so many laughs together as he grows
Especially when she tucks him into bed and puts him under his cover
Christopher grows up to be a bit wild
Soon reaching for what he deserves
Making his parents look at him in fascination

Christopher has never caused his parents any strife
Even though he always touched his mother with his sticky fingers
Even now, he still wonders about rainbows
He has fallen in love with the girl that is next-door neighbor
His girlfriend is an exquisite Fairchild
His parents and girlfriend support all of his choices
A tear falls from his mother’s eye as he walks across the stage for his graduation

    It's beautiful, and it DOES describe the beauty that is motherhood, but perhaps you should continue. Motherhood lasts a lifetime, not just until graduation, talk about the pain of seeing them move out, and the joy you feel when you watch them become parents themselves perhaps. Just my two cents.
