A Mother’s Legacy

She never strove

To be in front

Her shy demeanor

Kept her in shadow

She lived her life

The way she could

Her children kept her

In the battle


Her fighting done upon her knees

Where stammered words would not be silenced

Her weapon was her faith in Christ

Protecting her from blood spilled violence


Easy to praise one from afar

When all you see are accolades

But a life that’s filled with lonely tears

In part caused by my fierce tirades?


And all the words remorse can say

Could ne’er erase the memories

She viewed her scars as worth the fight

When I finally saw Christ’s Treasuries!


It’s been some years that she is gone

But I often think how she must soar

A celebrity that few may know

In heaven now her words can roar!

–Today’s prompt…A poem about any celebrity I am a fan of, present or past. My mother, A celebrity in maybe my eyes only.

I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused. Soon to be added is another blog...writings on hope from a biblical perspective.
