    As I sit here and reflect back my eyes well with tears of joy
    I am so very proud of you my son, my young man
    Your no longer my little boy, you have come so far
    But yet have far to go and from what I can see
    You are on the right road

    Im not going to sit here and say I told you so
    I knew one day you would wake up and see that
    Its more to life than fly units, bummpn Speakers,
    the lastest $175 sneakers, and lets not forget all them females
    Blowing up your phone keepn’ you destracted
    From whats really going on

    I know having to cut your locs to get that job was hard
    Its only hair son it can grow back
    Now your walking around with your pockets all fat
    And I know you really like that

    Our relationship was strained for a very long time
    It hurt me to my soul because you are the only thing
    That is truly constant in my life I was so afraid for you
    Did not want you to get caught up in that madness
    That plagues our young black men lives
    Leaving them dead or locked up from chasing media lies

    I had to step back and loosen the reins let you feel a little
    Hurt, despair, and pain I knew one day you would get it right
    Your way to intelligent to just give up and not fight

    Now we are back on track like it use to be
    Our bond is even stronger
    A mother and son team that can’t be defeated or torn down
    No matter what because I love you so very much
    And I know you love me too

    I am so honored to be your mother
    Because you gave me the drive to keep me hangn’ in there
    When life and its elements were trying to beat me down
    It was you that kept my backbone straight
    Never to negate from what I needed to do

    You see I have learned some things from you too
    When I look at you I can't believe your 22
    And I just wanted to tell you that
    You are one awesome young man
    And I am so very proud of you

    Love Mom

    Speaking to 4EVERLUV

    Wisdom walks majestically in your poetic tale
    A mom telling how events change on her son’s life scale
    It’s as though he’s been tried, measured, and seen accepted!
    Mom’s prayers cause Satan’s plans to be intercepted



    ENJOY PEACE

    Well, I got teary eyed reading this. We want to be so much for our children, guard them from all the pain. But if we do that they'll never learn. So hard to watch them learn sometimes. Anywho, I felt all your heart in this. Thank you for sharing part of your son.

    Whew...Im holding back tears on this one...
    4ever. This cuts deep. Wish I had a mom growing up, to love and support me like this.

    Just a very emotional and involving work. It just draws you in subtly without being sappy or overtly cloying. Your word choices were just so on time, they really fit the piece as a whole. It is about "feeling"..and this piece made me feel something, a mother's love.

    Ill be back again reading this one. Like all good works, it draws me in.

    Thank you so much for those wonderful words
    of kindness. Yes, I've prayed alot and still praying.
    It was hard for me to let go of his hand but when
    I did the Lord grabbed.


    watz:
    Your words are so very true. Didn't mean to tear your
    eyes, but I was boo-hooing by the time I finished the piece
    myself, but they were tears of joy. Your words of kindess
    are greatly appreciated.


    $$RICH$$:
    I know you can relate to this piece. Thank you
    so mcuh for the visit and the continued luv.


    abstract:
    Hello there, it's been a while. It's always
    a pleasure to have you bless my work.
    Your words made me smile, this piece
    just flowed out my pen because
    it was in my heart. I'm sure you are
    are wonderful son as well. Thanks again:)

    them in faith
    let's all :bowdown: to each other.

    Wow this was wonderful piece! It's the example of what motherhood is all about. I commend you for being there for your son and I think he'll always appreciate what you've just said for the rest of his life.
