Mother's Day Poem (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)


Thank you for making all my birthdays bright
Celebrating all my years

Thank you for getting up late at night
And dispelling all my fears

Thank you for the values you taught me
Being patient as I learned

Thank you for filling me with glee
At every milestone I turned

Thank you for teaching me to be a woman
Others could look up to

Thank you for doing everything under the sun
That you could possibly do

Thank you for showing me the kind of mother
My son would need me to be

"I Love You" is Enough (Louis Toliver Jr)

Please don’t stress I see what you do all year Everyday you show me Through your actions How much you care for me But please don’t stress It’s not money or possessions That make me give my life to you It’s the moments that are small When people don’t care to look That you show your love most So don’t stress to demonstrate What you already know you do Just say “I love you” and… My underwear will come off for you

God Will Cry (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

This is your soul trying to connect to you for last the time. We have come to the final crossroad in our life. This is the end. These are our last earthly breaths.
From this abuse of yourself, we will both die. You will be a rotting corpse. I will fade away into Darkness. People may mourn your death, at first, but you will be forgotten, while I am left here molested by the hands of Hell.
God will cry, “My child didn’t fulfill her purpose.”
I’m begging you; don’t do this. It has been a slow ride, a slow descent to suicide.
