Description: My mother was a single mother. She raised six boys on her own! Married twice...three boys each time. I'm the baby! Anyway, this poem comes as a comfort to single mothers to let you all know that some men do care. Some of us do have a heart. I notice the single mothers everywhere and they always have a place in my heart. God Bless All Single Mothers. Especially the ones who are having it hard financially and emotionally.
SINGLE MOTHERS -------------------------------------------
To single mothers everywhere I give a piece of my heart
Keep your head up
I know it's hard playing two parts
And child support isn't enough to stop that child from crying
As he looks at you and asks "why does daddy keep lying"
We men can't even fathom the hurt and the pain
Another day, another problem, another tear once again
Not quite the life you dreamed of when you slept as a child
And though it's rough when your kids sleep you kiss them and smile
Having babies out of wedlock wasn't part of the plan
But you knew with all your heart that you would be with that man
And when things didn't work
you tried your best
But he got worst
And thank God because your child doesn't deserve to hear him curse
I even see you with your purse out looking for work
Catching buses here and there
Bringing your babies to church
You even sacrifice your wants to supply what they need
Can't get your hair and nails done because the children must eat
You are the single inspiration to women everywhere
And you will find someone to love y'all
Even if the Dad never cares
So don't hold your head down
There will be better days
Single mothers deserves crowns
Queens in so many ways
I like this one. Your work is so real and down to earth. You seem to understand so much more of the world than some 40 year old men. You are truly a gift to the world of poetry. And I can't wait to read more.
This is beautiful X! My mother is a single mother also, 3 kids (I'm the baby in family). She put my sister through college on her own, no help from my father even though he's still around. Sometimes when I'm mad at her, I look at the 3 of us and think "damn, how'd she do this by herself?" Makes me appreciate her that much more.
This was very sincere. I myself am a single mother. My daughter will probably grow up never knowing her father. I tried to make him a father but found out that is not something you can force on someone. I try my hardest everyday to be all I can for my daughter. I know my responsibilities as a mother. It's too bad her father didn't know his. Great write. You really touched my heart with this one.
Sir- You truly have struck a cord with this piece. Bravo! This is exactly why I didnt leave my first wife 15 years ago. This is exactly why I endured a loveless marriage. This is not how I would let my children have to suffer. My hat's off to you my friend. YOu have shown the inside of what women go through to take care of their children. I SPIT on the men who leave their children and do not at least provide financially for them. They are the lowest of the low. Ben
Oooh, i knew I'd be seeing Excellent stuff from you, but this is awsome. My mums a single mom too, four kids on her own with little more than a leaky roof and a really junky car. And we all got chicken pox at the same time. o.o. I thank her everyday in some small way for being there for all of us through everything. Since the days of one bedroom apartments we've risen out of that yuck and gloom all on her hard work to this fantabulous six bedroom four full bath house. Excellent backyard, and we're getting a pool too. thanks a lot for writing this, I think I'm going to print it out and put it on her door for her!! It's beautifu, X. ~Sicobe R. Crow
Oh im all teary eyed .... My fave part was probebly the ...
Having babies out of wedlock wasn't part of the plan But you knew with all your heart that you would be with that man
Because so many times people have said to me "You should have thought about it before you had a baby with him " ....It's not always that you didnt think ...Just you are blinded.....This really is so sweet and amazing that you would show appreciation in this way ...*kleenex moment* Blessed Be Fantastic Job :)
one word dude...BEAUTIFUL! I loved it's so... compationate. And you know what you're right the situation they're in wasn't foreseen and they do deserve much better expecially considering what they have sacrificed and what they could have done. And you know brah thanx for caring. Women need true and "xtremegentlmen" such as yourself, and simply because you're one of the few men that care or even notice I'mma leave you alone. ;) Peace-out, Doe P.S.- I'm not a rocker. I just have alot of rocker friends.(not that you even care or even should). srry, that's completly irrelevent, so I guess I'm just sayin'.
This was absoulutely beautiful. You have a huge heart, you can tell from your writings. Poetry tells a persons personality. It is great that you support single mothers. As all of us know it is really hard to be a single mother. I don't think i would be able to be strong enough to be a single mother so i give all of those single mothers out there a lot of credit. God knows that if the father isn't in the childs life he doen't deserve to be in that childs life. I really have no advice for this. You are a wonderful writter. I can't wait to read more of what you write. much love to ya mikki
