My Momma

A free verse poem dedicated to animals

My momma loves me.

My momma cares for me.

My momma feeds me.

My momma doesn’t diet.

My momma doesn’t need drugs.

My momma isn’t fashionable.

My momma doesn’t need electronics.

My momma knows where I am.

My momma’s family is close by.

My momma says that perhaps

Mankind can learn from her,

and all the other animals, because

The only things she fears is them.

The destruction they cause in

The environment and the world.

My momma says mankind is supposed

To be higher order thinkers, but

The animals seem to be smarter.

My momma says that mankind is suffering

because of their choices.

If only mankind could learn from

My momma.
