Mama's Girl - Poem by Tricia Whyte

From the sun she shaded me
When the rain fell she let me see
All the troubles I caused in this world,
Could not stop her from being
My mama

I have sinned a thousand times,
She branded me only five hundred
I cried a river of tears,
She prayed for a sea of happiness
So I will know no fears

When life swung an unjust blow,
She fought like blazing thunder
When I went under,
I was never faultless
She is flawless

Now I shout to the world
Mama’s Girl is back
She has sent me forth
To deliver the facts
She have sustained her whole

I have worth, so I am stronger
I have wisdom, now I am wiser
I have love pure and true
Know this world Mama’s girl has arrive
She is reborn and I’m alive.

So when sun shines
I need no shelter
When the rain falls
I will not asunder
For I have my mama.
