MY ROCK


I rushed into the world a bit too fast.
I was the first and only child my mother bore,
so this was big news for her.
I was not big, got room in a hand.
A loving hand that gave me confidence, strength
and love.
Confidence, strength and love only a mother can give.
I was little and weak, but I fought hard.
I was able to cling to life and grow me big.
But this is thanks to you my mom that gave me 
confidence, strength and love.






Dedicated to my mom

    Hello, i adore the title as it is paramount(to me) in the full picture ie the solidity and steadfast reliability of a rock. This is a comforting mention of how loving and devoted a mother you was blessed with... Beautifully compiled ... Karen

    Thank you very much for welcome me to PoetrySoup and for reading my poem. An special thanks for your good advice. This is all new for me regarding both my english and my confidence about my poetry, and one of my biggest fear is to do, write anything wrong in my comments and poem. oxox Laila
