Just Past Middle


This isn't the best poem I've ever written about my mother but it's the one I can share today.



Black female

Just past middle

Age weight height

Okay not height


She’s lived through

And fought so much

More than I know


Saving me from what life

Might, but never

Would, have been


Because she is

My mother
