    Mothers are underpaid

    Please , let me take this time to let you know , 
     I'm of a seed that was selected ,
       divinely placed into the most perfect egg on Earth
         
     Nothing on God's green Earth  can stop that love
    Not even the Devil's advocate pulling strings ,
      Not the slander of who you used to be ,
    Not what you consider to be your failure or flaws
      Not even if you had dated my man ...

    for our relationship was forged before birth
       This music that Satan plays isn't my tune
    he has portrayed me as everything but the divinity that I am
      The forgiveness that you seek , isn't mine to hold
    For the price was paid from the sacrifical lamb.
     Sometimes , when life is difficult, we bump heads
    But , the love that God gives is unconditional
        Just a little drop of love , can heal all things ...
    for we are made in his image ..

    Nothing on God's green Earth  can stop that love 
    Not even the Devil's advocate pulling strings , 
      Not the slander of who you used to be , 
    Not what you consider to be your failure or flaws 
      Not even if you had dated my man ...
     
    We play , laugh , joke , compete in a loving way
    challenging each other to be our best .
       from the outside our love has brought on jealousy
    from those that don't understand who we are .
        I would not choose any other women to be my Mother
    Takes time sometimes to understand , the subtle
       Worth the hardship, worth all the valleys, worth it ... 

    Thank you for never staying away from my life for too long
    and for stepping in to raise my kids when I couldn't
    thank you, for not allowing me to fall back on excuses
     when I called myself shutting the world out ...
     You continued to creep in ...

    Never too late to cultivate a stronger relationship with your Mom...emotional / spiritual... thank you for the comment God bless

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
