Like My Mama



Like My Mama

 

I wanna a be a mama like my mama

I wanna be strong and grounded in my faith

Every striving to be my best self

I wanna be a mama like my mama

Strict, with high expectations

And the greatest love you can ever feel

I wanna be a mama like my mama

Movie hopping on the weekends just for fun

Drive-ins and shopping sprees

I wanna be a mama like my mama

Guiding not deciding how you grow

Teaching lessons and valuing education

I wanna be a mama like my mama

Proud, wise, strong, smart and brave

Gentle and kind and in touch with the Divine

I wanna be a mama like my mama

Resilient in struggle and overcoming all obstacles

Steadfast and secure leaning on the Lord

I wanna be a mama

Like my mama

 

 

This poem was inspired by the theme for Jingle Poetry Potluck- Idols, Role Models and Mentors. I’ve already shared some pieces on my idol St. John Coltrane, but I hadn’t shared anything about my role model as a mother. This Potluck offered me the opportunity, thanks 🙂
