She Fathered Me

It was my lovely mother who devotedly fathered me; She taught me wisdom and the ability to analytically see. Fully guided me with discipline; sprinkling lashes, when necessary; She trained me up, “In the way that I should go” and not contrary. I learnt life-moulding lessons daily; through which I matured; She re-enforced what I was taught at school, because it mattered. Daily she provided, while teaching me that it was God who provides; I learnt that decisions have consequences; so before you decide scrutinize. She always solicited advice and aid from other men about “guys stuff;” Because she understood that in some areas, she didn’t know enough. She never slowed down; gave up; nor as I see it, never once rested; Even when her health, strength, will and faith; life’s trials sorely tested. When all is said, written and done, my beloved mother is the one; She bore, raised, mothered and fathered me – she’s my Wonder Woman. End By: Dion Penville
