The Hardworking Mother - Poem by justice bernard brown

The hard working mother...
Never sleeps or rests
Pushing until light falls
And pulling until day breaks

The hard working mother...
Is the ice in the fire
Yet keeps moving with pride in her step
And motivation in her heart

The hard working mother...
Is like water,
Always taken for granted until needed,
Used everyday yet not noticed,
Takes different forms but is never awarded

The hard working mother...
Gets tired and frustrated,
Gives love and compassion,
Always needed never replaced

Only one day is given,
Only 24hrs is spared
To the hard working mother,
Whose burden was never shared
