Power of Place 2.0
Slam Poem #2

Sonnet about Mom

a guiding angel always there
watching waiting loving living 

my mom is always there to share

never selfish always giving 

whenever I am down she comes, to picks me up
I am not afraid to fail knowing that she’s there
my Mom has all the energy like a little pup
a strong presence like a bear she never scares

her loving warmth it radiates
her claws come out to protect at the right times
her power and beauty is oh so great
the positivity makes me climb

without my mom I am weak shes here 

to teach me, give me, strength for life



This Poem was hard for me, it did not come easy, I had to really dig in to get a product out. Instead of focusing on the iambic part, I decided that I would have to just do ten syllables to get my point across. I read it to my mom and she liked it but I’m not sure if it’s good or not given my mother’s bias.
