Dear Mama

Dear Mama

A Poem by Khalab Darnell

Happy mothers day

As a hard headed youth growing up in the street,
I only had two things and that's my mama and my heat.
But even when strayed from the right path,
Mama always had my back, even when she whooped my a*s.

I just really want to thank you because you saved me,
From a life behind bars, you never played me.
Even though we had different struggles,
I'd lay down and die but only for my mother.

When i was hurting as a little kid,
You brought me joy through all the pain and tears,
And there's no way I can pay you back,
Just glad I got the chance too help you understand,
You are appreciated.
