    mama was a hard working woman
    playing two roles to make me feel whole
    so my soul didn't have to go through no healing
    duality was her middle name played the role
    of that "sperm donor" on a higher plane
    cause she...loved me...
    that was my mama breaking down
    sex and love and relationships
    so I could learn to inhale heaven not
    hell from the right woman's lips...
    she taught me that the blak woman is
    queen even though---there are some snakes
    see, she said...even grown folks make mistakes...
    I learned to cry down the back of my
    better half and catch her tears when she
    found it hard to laugh...cause life is a "mutha"
    cause stress and strife and ridicule can make
    the sun commit suicide or ride high without
    saying goodbye leaving us all in the dark
    see mama, she was the father I never had,
    or not really known since age twelve...she brought me
    beyond statistics and having coroners checking my body for missplaced ballistics
    I have livde to see a future that so many don't see.

    It takes a strong woman to
    lead sons by herself...I applaud
    your mom and all mothers with the strength
    to be both a mother and father to her children.....nice piece.
