Happy Birthday Mom!



A short light-skin woman from the south.
lived on a farm with her parents, 10 brothers & sisters.
she is the youngest of the siblings.
soon by fate and mystery she left her family,
to live up north and beared a child.

this baby girl is my mother.

my mom wanted to be a dancer.
she wanted to be a model.
she wanted to do all the things her heart desired.
she wanted to be loved.

through her pursuits, she fell in love with a man.
a man that took all those things away from her.
and that left her with only me.

she was only twenty,
and now had another mouth to feed.
with just a one room apartment,
trying to pay bills,
struggling to finish college,
it was a lot and a sacrifice,
to make sure that I would have a better life.

yet through it all,
my mom gave me:

a childhood
insight
freedom
creativity
knowledge
laughter
wisdom
strength
sensitivity
responsibility
integrity
dreams
& love...

...and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

No matter how old we both get, I will never forget the times that me and you were each others role dawgs. Your my bestfriend. My mommy. I celebrate you!
