I Am My Mother's Son

She and I in a way are very much alike
We both resemble one another
I am her only son
And she is my mother

She has done a lot of things
That has caused many family members pain
She worries her mom and dad half to death
While I feel she will make me go insane

She has abused drugs and alcohol
For as long as everyone can remember
She then unintentionally conceived a child
And then in Nineteen Eighty-Nine on the Nineteenth of November

She gave birth to a baby son
She gave me my name
And then soon after that she would run
Away from all her troubles and responsibilities

But no matter what she has done
I will always love her
Because I am my mother’s son
And she will always have a place in my heart

    This is unconditional love, James...pure and simple. You are blessed in that you don't hold any grudge as this can drag you down and hold you there! Keep loving your Mother and pray for her. None of us are perfect. God bless! Annalise

    Gosh, James I really don't know how to comment to this. Other than to say a Mother/son/mother relationship in the most basic sense is perceived the same for all but some few people/animals, etc. Then again, don't know if your poem is true or fictional. Seems like it would have to be true, though.
