I am proudly South African. I love reading especially poetry and still new to posting my poetry online.
Mother Dear - The little girl you never knew
The little girl you never knew.
From a broken home with a shattered heart
With a daddy who gave up on me from the start
My mommy raised me all on her own
To be brave, smart, loving and strong
For when life knocks me to my knees
I will rise again and keep moving on
She helped me build these castle walls
And said don’t weep for if they should crumble and fall
She wrapped her arms around my heart and soul
And whispered to me: "You will never be alone”
If David could defeat Goliath with just one stone
She knows I can fight this life on my own
Do not cry for what is right and what is wrong
Waste no tears or love on those who do not belong
Keep your heart pure and let your beauty shine
And if your heart should ever be broken,I will give you mine.
