"My Mom"

Gateway Middle School
City of St. Louis, MO

My mom is black, beautiful, and strong.
She excels and is determined to survive
In a world that can be brutal.
She is unfazed by obstacles that try to block her way.
She looks back through time
And realizes she must maintain
Her strong will of invincibility to succeed
Regardless of her past.
My mom is black, bold, and beautiful,
And the most important piece of the puzzle,
We call her Mother Earth!
