For Naida A.H.E Act 1

When I first saw your your face I saw god
And a smile was the first image that flashed across the freshly minted retinas that were large
Hearing your heart beat for these past nine months
Was a beautiful track to rap to that broke the silence
Thank you for all that you've ever done
I'm blessed to be born as your baby son

You're god
My god
Oh god
Love my mom

You fed with your love
Bathed me with kisses and hugs
Rocked me back forth when I was upset
Rocked me back to sleep with the sweet songs you would sing when I cried upon your chest
Took me for rides in the car when you couldn't find success so stressed and all I gave you in return was a smile and laughter but that was all you needed we communicated in the universal love language that we mastered.


When I first saw your your face I saw god
And a smile was the first image that flashed across the freshly minted retinas that were large
Hearing your heart beat for these past nine months
Was a beautiful track to rap to that broke the silence
I just want to Thank you for all that you've ever done
And tell you I'm blessed to be born as your baby son

You're god
My god
Oh god
Love my mom


Now I'm getting older and craving my independence
The beginning was my first steps in Chicago
When I descended
And ventured on my own
I thought I was so grown
It's funny how we all end up trying to escape you
It's crazy how we all end up saying I hate you
Usually when you first put us on punishment
Now I'm able thank you for not succumbing to it
Your strength is that of a super hero
From giving birth and the pain threshold
To not giving in when we beg for what you know
Is detrimental
To our well being
You know the past present and future a Supreme Being


When I first saw your your face I saw god
And a smile was the first image that flashed across the freshly minted retinas that were large
Hearing your heart beat for these past nine months
Was a beautiful track to rap to that broke the silence
Thank you for all that you've ever done
I'm blessed to be born as your baby son

(I just love you)

When I was in the third grade being degraded by my teacher Ms fosnough kicked out her class for not being able to write in cursive was hard tho
I told you what happened it differed from her call so
you told me to be patient
And when you came to my square dance show led by her with sis Mildred and her baby rasool he was crying as we all do
She snapped and yelled at an infant
And it was right there at that Instant
you knew
and that night you told me
wazir
I'll always believe you
The trust grew
You became my attorney through school
Because the school to prison pipeline is so true

This is just one example
and I have so many
and not enough time to share
you helped with everything I swear

So for you I leave this trail of tears

I love you mom ..,.
