She had her at 21
Precious baby girl
Working hard
Giving everything she had
Instilling in her
Is important
Many lectures from grandad
Made it hard
To forget
The importance of it
Through the struggles
And defeat
She made it
Bachelor’s in human services
That wasn’t enough
A young mother
Striving for greatness
She made sure it was clear
This road
Is not easy
Master’s in clinical psychology
Whew chile’
A black women two degrees hot
I wanted to be her
she wants me to be better.
