My inspiration: The Woman Who Didn't Have to

She doesn't have to

yet she does

 

She doesnt have to clothe me

yet she does.

 

She doesn't have to feed me

yet she does. 

 

She doesnt have to love me like her own

yet she does.

 

She doesn't have to be so strong 

yet she is.

 

She never had to be my mother 

yet she is. 

 

She doesn't have to work so hard

yet she does. 

 

She doesn't have to make my dreams come true

yet she's trying. 

 

I hope one day I'm half the woman that she is.

This poem is about: 
My family
