Mommy you will never call me for that title belongs to someone else, yet you will

Always be my first child…for I have been there to see you grow like the flowers of a

Royal water lily and its many transformations, petals white as jades full of virginal

Innocence releasing aromatic scents of independence that will attract many trying to

Strip you of your beauty and rob you of your virtue, so I say bask in the richness of your

Soul for the light that you have within can never be dimmed unless you

Allow it…..


Today’s poem was written in acrostic form. An acrostic poem is one that uses a word or phrase (usually the theme or the underlying subject matter of the poem) written vertically.

Each letter of the word/phrase then acts as the beginning letter for a new line of the poem. Whatever is written using each letter must connect to the subject matter.
