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
