We have had courage to love our Mothers who left us in the care of another.
We have kept our lights shining bright within us, for our Mothers.
We have taken shit for our Mamas.
We have kicked ass for our Mamas honor.
We have worked to be our best, to make our Mamas proud. Both of them.
And we have mourned a loss no one wants to see.
And we have grown up without our families of origin
And we speak that truth.
So all can see.
What a Mother means.
To children like us.
