Poetry On Odyssey: A Mother's Day Poem

My mom has put up with a lot.

Poetry On Odyssey: A Mother's Day Poem
Brittany Slaughter

This mother’s day, I’d like to say

Thanks to my mom for the help along the way.

For the words of wisdom, I didn’t always want to hear

For always whispering that you love me in my ear.

Thanks for the kindness and times of fun

For making sure from my fears I didn’t run.

For the push when I needed it

And a shoulder to cry on

You have endured much as the years have gone.

For the help with math, and the frustration that it brought

For all of that you deserve a lot.

For the times we laughed until we cried

When we reminisced on memories between you and I.

For the times when I you called in tears

You rushed to the rescue, you are always near.

For the things you encouraged me to do

For all the times you didn’t say “I told you.”

You had to put up with many firsts

Having a daughter means emotions come in bursts.

From a first heartbreak and all the friend drama

You’ve always been a supportive mama.

You make sure I use common sense

When I’ve been accused you come to my defense.

People say I look like you

To me, this is a dream come true.

You have left some big shoes to fill

That’s what happens when you follow God’s will.

You pour scripture over me

I can feel the prayers you pray sincerely.

You’re my mom and I wouldn’t trade you for the world

Because of you I’m one blessed girl.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

girl with parents

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall.
