Show Me The Way - Poem by Melissa Muchemwa

Show me the way
That i can be as
Hard-working as you
And as independent as you,
As strong-willed as you
And as fearless as you.
I'd like to know the way
So i can become just like
You in every little way,
Follow the path until i
Become the woman you are today.
Mother,
You are so caring,
You are so true to yourself.
Each day is a struggle
But still you get up to
Face the world and
Fight for your rights,
You make no excuses and
You never give up
Just like your mother,
You are my insperation,
You make me want to be
The best and make the
Most of each given day.
You are always there
To lift me up when i'm down
And when others need your help
You always welcome them and
Give them the same amount
Of love you give your children.

Because of all this and more
I'd like to know the way
So i can become just like
You in every little way.
Mother,
You are so loving
And there's no woman
In this world that can
Take your place and now
My only dream is to become
Just like you in every little way;
Be very honest
Be very patient
Mind my own bussiness
And fight what ever
May come my way
Just like you do.
