    mama
    stood tall when
    i was short
    she was cold
    when i would melt
    she blew refreshing breezes--
    reminding I of who I was and
    where I came from...
    mama resonated--
    like echoes i hear--
    continual-ly
    she
    was all i ever needed to be that
    strong black man everyone talks about
    that seems never to exist

    mama was never less than a mountain for me--
    and as a man

    i must become my own.

    (i love you ma.)
