Momma’s Boy: A Poem for My Mother

Originally written October 21, 2006. Left as is besides mentioning of last name for privacy reasons. I titled it Famous Last Words. Left Last Words. 

Betty **** did not save the best for last

My mom made her mother a grandma first

My mom made her sisters want to have kids

So my cousins should thank me for their life

My mom and my dad should have got married

So the name Strong compliments what she is

Damn I wish I was born on Mother’s Day

Cuz there is no gift like the gift of life

My son will be named after me, his pop

My daughter will be named after my mom

Mom did not raise me but I will raise her

I will die for you mom, you gave me life

Harold … I’m the work of art Betty ****

Pen running out of ink, mom I love you …- Artist of the Year

My pen actually was out of ink. You can see the ink fading on this line while the previous lines are bold face. I can’t remember if this was real or I got another pen to create the effect.

A Thousand Kisses: A Poem For My Grandma

Originally wrote on October 18, 2006. I titled it More Than A Grand. I’m not adding to it or subtracting from it (Besides omitting her last name for privacy reasons. And, although, the poem is built off her name, it’s only the first name anyways.) I left it how I wrote it 11 years ago. 11 years ago? Wow!

There are some people who live up to their name

Names like Jamie, Tracy, and Terry/Terri pass as bisexual names

Now there is a new name that will pass as a bisexual name

A name can tell a lot about a person’s character

Darnell **** is the grandparent who I live with

Darnell **** has 3 daughters, no sons, well until now

I feel like my mother and my auntees are my sisters

I don’t think I’ma son to my mother, I don’t think I’ma nephew to my auntees, I’m more of a uncle to my brothers, sisters, and my cousins, brother to my mother and auntees

And our mother is more like a sister to us

Darnell **** brings home the bacon like a man and cooks it like a woman

Darnell **** makes the money like a man and spends it like a woman

Darnell **** can dirty like a man and can clean like a woman

Darnell **** raised a son like a man and raised daughters like a woman

My grandma lives up to her name

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
