Ma

Ma.
Such safety in that slang.
For namer and named.
Grace spoken, bread broken.
Taken for granted that wishes are granted.
Amen.

Mother.
What chemicals are released in your brain?
Been there since your birth.
Summed up all her worth.
In a word.
Mom.

She.
What has she done?
What has she left?
What did she conquer to make your paths straight?
Cannot separate word from feeling.
Mama.

Her.
Her desires and feelings and thoughts and love
Have all been poured out over you.
Not one single second since you arrived
Has she considered not caring, not fighting, not existing for you.
Thank you, Ma.
