A poem in celebration of my Mother



I am My Mother’s Daughter
©2009  Syneeda Penland

When I wake up every morning
And look in the mirror to see my face,
I realize…
I am My Mother’s Daughter!

When I look at my smooth brown skin,
My kinky hair and the twinkle in my eyes,
I realize…
I am My Mother’s Daughter!

When I notice the strut in my walk,
My sassy style, or at times the tone in my voice,
I realize…
I am My Mother’s Daughter!

When I exude the courage, strength and wisdom
To get me through hard times,
I realize…
I am My Mother’s Daughter!

No matter how many times we try to change ourselves
Or deny who we truly are,
We can never change or deny our heritage,
Which is You, who I see in Me.

I am truly blessed to be,
My Mother’s Daughter!
