A Poem by child of God

High school
They teach us
Math and history
They teach us
English and science
But what do get from it
I am a graduate
And I wonder
What did i learn
They didn't teach
Me how hard it
Is to get a job
Or about the
Struggle of
Keeping an
My mother
Is thirty-nine
Years old
And i watch
Her work everday
I watch her struggle
With a minimum wage job
And go to college to be something
She doesn't even want to be
Just to take care of four kids
And did we appreciate that
No we didnt but she still
Struggles and works hard
Caleb you laugh and go around
And make a muck of things
Joey you run around and go MIA
With out a word to mom
Laura you are a pretty good kid
But do you do choirs no none of
Us do and look were we are
Yet again kicked out of our home
And whos fault is that
Not your mom you work hard
I see the stress you go through
Mother you taught me more about
Life then high school im sorry
I took you for granted
I love you mom
