MRS. TUCKER IS A CARING MOTHER


Walking back from court down to the cells
I talked to Mrs. Tucker she had a lot to tell.
She told me to forgive my mom for
not forgiving her is like a rock weighing me down so
I just listened knowing my mom was an immortal foe.
I cried as she talked telling me about her son
she said “You only have one mother
when she’s gone there are none.”
I knew in my mind I had already lost my mom
a long time ago- -
My mom wasn’t a real caring mother to me
she kept me from going home.
Mrs. Tucker is a caring mother for her words
were there to comfort and see a different way
she even gave advice to inmates
very sweet and short before
they went to court that day.
I wish Mrs. Tucker was my mother
for she is a caring soul
that is what really matters in jail when
confinement takes its toll.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
