    I'm strong but I'm lonely,
    Is it because my mother left me when I was little?
    Raised by my father,
    But without the touch of a mother have I become brittle?

    She has been gone ever since,
    Have I sought to replace her with others?
    The Isis Papers have indicated this,
    ...Do I want all women to be my mothers?

    See, I brandish ill skill
    Never up for a quick thrill
    Stay up top with my ill will
    But time can stand still...

    When you feel like the last warrior standing.

    I remember december 8x
    I came to the world.
    My mother was young enough
    To be considered a girl.

    Younger than I am today,
    But I am wiser and more mature.
    Another needless rhyme - lament from me,
    What remedy will be my cure?

    One.

    There are some things that are so difficult to deal with, a hurtful struggle. And yet, you persevere, you become even stronger, maybe even with each write, so there is a reason to jot it all down so eloquently as you do.

    I feel you pain better than you will ever know. And poetry is cheaper than therapy so keep letting your emotions run through your pen. Brcause it comes out with awesome results like this right here

    Hello Ikoro;
    It is very nice to read you again. It in deed has been a while.
    Although your piece has a certain sadness to it I could not
    help but think as I was reading it that one would have never
    knew this information had you not penned it. I say this because
    I remember when you join this site and how you always ended your
    posts with such beautiful words about women. I must admit
    I was very moved by this and would always say to myself
    "his mother raised him well". I encourage you to continue
    to pen your thoughts whether you share them or not. It
    always helps me to just get it out. I will kept you in my thoughts.


    Much Luv
