Thank you mother

I must confess!!
my mother was not there
when i needed milk from somebody's breast

Probably she was feeling stress -
daddy used to beat her down
living marks from the face to the chest

Eventually mom left,
living behind two sons;
i must believe she thought it was best

To do not worry about the rest -
she kept on going forward
and buildup a new nest

I'm not writing this for you to criticize
but rather
for you to analyze   

That i had realize!!
You couldn't ever gone back
to get hurt and be utilize

So you came to the deep south
with only one purpose;
not ever going back to the devil's mouth
If i was you i would have done the same,
but again, what about my sons
you know what, don't take the blame

Mother is alright!!
I am very thankful
for i am very bright

Thank you again for giving birth 
two beautiful sons;
worth introducing to the planet Earth

    I think that this poem is your best one, Diogenes. Excellent! Your words hit hard...the readers are unable to confront the emotion. It's going to my favs. Bring more of this... it helps to forget and forgive. Ruben.

    How wise of you to realize your mother did what she felt she had to do to escape abuse, though it's a pity she did not take her boys with her. You ability to succeed in spite of your past and your willingness to forgive are inspiring. This is a beautiful poem! Love, Carolyn
