    Long time ago
    I seen my ma naked down the hall
    She screamed, “COVER YOUR EYES BOY!”
    Thinking that I hadn’t seen
    What she’s got
    But I closed my eyes anyways
    Because she was teaching
    Teaching me not to look with eyes
    But to look with heart
    To one day find a woman that
    Was just as powerful as she
    A woman that I respected
    And Admired as much as her
    That I’d be willing to go momentarily blind for her
    To see how great women are
    To witness how they are effervescent
    Our last lights in the
    Middle of the Darkness.

    Happy Mothers Day To All!

    I had to smirk a bit when I began reading this piece, no parent wants to be caught like that. But then you took the piece and struck us with wisdom, that when you look beyond what's before you, you are presented with beauty that extends to infinity. Your pen has awesome flair. Thank you brother poet.

    Mither was Love
    And Her love was me
