Single Motherhood

  
 A boy child that knows only his mother
 Adored spoiled rotten like no other
 Obstinate mean ill tempered and rude 
 Manipulative insensitive sloppy and crude
 Athletic good looking healthy and strong
 A world ruled by men he'll grow to belong
 
 A father's absence he pretends to not care
 While his heart knows they had much love to share
 He watches his friends with dads of their own
 And longs for the father he's never known
 Was told that drugs took his father away
 But there's hope for recovery some day
 
Thanks to mentors of the community
A boy can learn respect and dignity
Thanks to family doing what they can 
A boy matures and learns to be a man
A mature man whose turn it is to show 
Fatherless boys the proper way to grow

    Poignant write this! The role of the father is often understated yet without it children grow up confused and unbalanced. I love the way you've shown that the cumulative responsibility of the community can aid in bringing up well-adjusted men. Very true Valkyri!

    Most households are headed by single mothers. The correction facilities have taken many of the males for violent crimes and drug related activities. The other large portion of males are on the streets, drug addicted and or alcohol self abused. Their intelligence and contributions to their family and society will never be known to their children or themselves, while single mothers raise the next generation alone.
