A Mother Child

A mother is a child
She is younger than her children
That is why she learns from them

She learns the value
Of overcoming sin
Temptation passes her by

Her Children are her mentors
She teaches them while
They teach her…… Perfect

A Mother loves her child
With her life ……. Nothing more
She is burdened by love

She cares, She loves
She’s our mother
We love her

A team of the greatest
A mother and her child
One can’t live without the other

They run a race
A relay
Her love powers her

She can over come
All things
Just dig a little deeper

They are the strongest
A mother and her child
Nothing can separate their bond

Emotions pay a truce
A battle can be mended
Strongly from their hearts

She follows a God
A being not be seen
And so does her child

Her child follows her
They make her feel the love
What more could we want

Wonderfully flowing, familiar to everyone yet quite special in itself. Very nicely done. -T. Bell
'A mother is a child She is younger than her children That is why she learns from them' Those lines rival anything I've seen these past few months for sheer poetic excellence- indeed the whole poem is mature, concise and insightful. Your poems are written fror a reason and I like that.
