I never really understood.... Mommas' tears I guess that's a given.... I mean when I got here she already had doubled-up on years I think that she already knew she created me displaced I think she knew when she gave me the world others' had a headstart in this race. She said child, you never really needed me GOD will show you the way.... My youngest baby always seem'd the oldest anyway... And before she died she summon'd me she said, "you've always been the glue" Hold yourself up and your sisters .. I leave this job to you. I see the way you've raised your son and "I AM" so proud you are my chile For once the tears went away, and I finally saw her smile. She said she never meant to treat me different, said I was independently strong And she said it was time for her to leave the world but she had to right the wrong First breath I took I was given the world without a map But Momma said I know the way, she let me go and said she can't wait til I come back. HOME.
