A Mother - Poem by Jamaica Alston

This poem has been written
many time before
A poem of how great a woman really is.
How strong she is to take the world
on by storm and how she stands
tall as the world beats her down.
There are many poems
of this woman; how she loves
How she dilates 10 centimeters
to have a 6 pound baby
Carrying it for 9 months
Going through so much pain
Nothing in the world can
take a mother's love
Her love for her family
Her love for her children
And her love for those who don't have
Appreciated - beyond words
Looked up to - of course
You do your best and that's
all that matters.
You are a great mom to me.
