Cassandra Jasmine

(United States of Awesomeness)

My Mother


Cherry-colored lips;
Always with a kind word there.
Hazel eyes touched up with eye-liner,
So often laughing but holding meaning as well.

My mother,
So kind, so compassionate,
Insisting on my well-being,
And selflessly made sure,
that I had a solid foundation.

At times,
My mother may be intimidating,
and getting on my nerves.
But who could blame her?
I am here to learn from her, not the opposite.

My dear Mother,
How much I love you,
I simply can not say,
But you really should know,
that even all the king's men and horses,
Can never take away my love for you.

    first the 'complaint'/suggestion:

    In times,
    My mother may be intimidating,
    and getting on my nerves...............maybe it is because of where i grew up, but i would use At times, not In times.
    ======================
    now for what poets (i think) all like to hear..........................BRAVO! this is really, really good. i am tempted to call it great, but i don't want your head to swell so much you can't get your hat on. i'll send it to MyPoemList now.

    i especially enjoyed:

    But you really should know,
    that even all the king's men and horses,
    Can never take away my love for you.

    very well done, cassie. thanks for sharing. :) bri

    you've inspired me to write of my own mom.

    Bri's Mom

    mom's face was such a sight!
    rightly so, she hid from the light! !
    never a kind word from her lips,
    and her eyes shot bullets from their hips.

    only concerned for herself, never me.
    if i asked for food, she said do you think it's FREE! ?
    she sent me to school, but NOT for education;
    once she sent a note saying keep him longer. it's MY vacation!

    intimidating? yeah, i can see my mom WAS like yours.
    you should have seen how she piled on the chores!
    i learned a lot from being my mom's son,
    none of which was how to, with her, have fun.

    mom, i know i shouldn't say it, but I HATE YOU! i'm your SON.
    if you hadn't abandoned ME, away from you i would have run.
    some day i'll enlist the aid of the king's forces,
    and they'll trample you under the hooves of their horses! !

    so THERE! ! ! !

    i hope this one was funny enough for ya. :) bri (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
