Poem: One Kind Hearted Soul

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"One Kind Hearted Soul" is a poem about how a mother shows her child more love than some will know without asking for anything in return.

She often does without to provide for her child.

She taught her humanity by being kind to others.

The child is proud of his mother & carries her kindness inside his heart.

Kind Hearted Soul

She is the reason
behind my every breath,
she taught me
to challenge myself,
giving me more love
than some people
will ever come to know.

She made certain
I didn't go hungry,
that my clothes
were not tattered,
not asking for anything
in return.

She shared valuable time
with me,
oftentimes, doing without
just to give me
everything I needed.

She taught me lessons
about humanity,
as I watched her
treat everyone with kindness.

I am proud
to be her child,
carrying her kind hearted soul
inside of me.

A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one can take.
