O Mother,

You bear the lightning, thunder;
You guide me when I blunder;
You allowed none to plunder;
You can’t be put asunder
By forces, above, under;
And when I try to ponder,
Mother, you are a wonder!

Very well done. You have a solid grasp of literature to reference and the poem is reflective with a bit of self-deprecating humor which I like. I tend to be wary of poets who take themselves too seriously.
