The True Mother

The True Mother

A Poem by Rufus "Mr Blaque" Lacy, Jr

For my mother, all moms and soon to be mother


The empathy of a mother

Know no bounds

They gave us life and the will to love

Show compassion in everything we do

Support our crazy ideas of being superheroes


Give encouragement to whatever we create

Even if it looks a mess

Clean up after us

Even after screaming “I will never again”

Giving us treats to make us smile


Because our day was bad

Even through your day was horrible

Every day should be Mother’s Day

But that cannot happen

Because Fathers will get jealous


Loving you deeply

Happy Mother’s Day
