A Mother - Poem by Danielle Beechum

A mother is more than a mother to me
She has far more capabilities than the eye can see
She is a friend, of ten times your only
She can be that significant other
When you are feeling down and lonely
She is a teacher, a student, and when you need savin’
She is your preacher
She is a father when the man is no where to be found
She is the jokester who has been known to clown around
Just to make you smile to make livin’ worth your while
She is a therapist, always the first to tell you that you’re crazy
But always the loudest voice cheering you on screamin’, “that’s my baby! ”
She is your sister, no doubt about that
Always thinking that everything she says is a known fact
She is your brother too, don’t get me wrong
Always the first to step in and be strong
She is your grandma and grandpa too,
Yes that’s right cause she is getting old
But don’t ever think that she will turn cold
For she is the ultimate care giver and provider
She will make sure that her close family gets even tighter
She is a strong, independent woman
No matter how mad she get the love just keeps on comin’
She is the punisher, yes be afraid
Cause she can yell, holler, and scream like no other
That woman can stomp, have a fit, and raid
But its all for the better
She can be the most softhearted person on the planet
If you let her
That is what a mother is to me
