For The Woman -to my mommy (Poem)

 FOR THE WOMAN (to my mommy):


For the woman

whose husband makes an "extra stop" after work every evening.


For the woman 

who is mourning the loss of a daughter that nobody else knew about.


For the woman 

who still leads from the front even although she’s lost inside.


For the woman 

who was fired for her fourth late because she has been awake for a straight week with a sick child.


For the woman 

whose genetics will never allow her to look like the ones in the magazines.


For the woman 

raising a fatherless sons and daughters and praying that history doesn't repeat itself.


For the woman 

who loves with all her heart, who’s desperate to be loved.


For every single woman 

that cries in the shower so that nobody else can see. Because if you aren't strong-nobody is.


I am you. I understand you. I am with you, I cry with you. I love you.
