A Poem for Single Mothers (for my sis)

I’m not sure if you know,

About the power inside you,

The one that Christ hid deep within,

It causes you to rest,

When sleep is no where near,

It causes you to fight,

With no win in sight,

How do you do it?

Morning by morning?

With the odds stacked against you,

And all the statistics telling you no?

You work, feed, study,

You struggle with strength,

In perfect serenity,

You are sanctification personified,

You are inspiration, a muse for all,

What you don’t know,

About that power inside you,

Is that you share it with the weakest,

Without even knowing,

You are gift.

If God is for you,

Who can be against you?

Who can stop you when you have come so far?

I’m not sure if you know,

About the power inside you,

The one that Christ hid deep within…
