Mom, where can I begin? It's like a long beautiful story that has yet to reach it's end..
I would be so much further behind if not for you, and I can't even pretend..
You’ve been the guiding factor that kept me from going over the brink
I love you and learned things from you that you wouldn’t possibly think
I owe you in ways that I’m not sure money can ever repay
but with the life you lead, I know you’ll be rewarded some day
your faith is inspiring, your heart is big and clear
not being the son I think you deserve, is one of my greatest fears
I wish I could take back all my mistakes and make you and dad proud
I wish whenever I see you un-happy, I could make you smile
I thank you for bearing with my procrastination
I’m now making steps to change my final destination
I respect you with all the respect I can muster
from childhood, to pre-teen, to adult you’ve been a loyal, long-suffering mother
in my opinion, mother’s day is all year around and not this one day
but it gives me the opportunity to say some things I wanna say
I lay down some nights and wonder how can one woman be so amazing
with knowledge, good advice, and a moral code that’s unchanging
raising 3 children on your own, and you did a wonderful job by yourself
fighting through loneliness, our bad choices and even bad health
just you still being here with me is a miracle in itself
monetary value aside, you have enormous spiritual wealth.
In less than 2 months, I hope to be able to make you believe in me
as I’m on my way to being “all I can be”
so mother, on your day I wish you lots of fun, love and happiness
my goal is to be what you taught me to be, I’ll accept no less
I love you more than the human vocabulary can personify
but I want to start showing that with my actions and stop living a lie
thank you for all the things you instilled in my heart and soul
and give me a little more time and my life will come under control

thank you and Happy Mothers Day!!

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
