Mother May I...A NiaG Poem

Mother may I be what I want to be

Reach high above, past the tallest tree


Mother may I jump for the stars

Claim I'm a musician, fine tune some guitars


Mother may I walk around with a crown

Head held high, ruling the town


Mother may I think of a plan

Help reach out to every lady, child and man


Mother may I click the camera at last

Capturing smiles, framing the past


Mother may I stand on my toes

Curtsy and bow, a plie I will pose


Mother may I reach an octave or two

Will you weep at my debut


Mother may I help those in need of care

Listen to their heart and help them repair


Mother may I be the best I can be

Can't I be more than what the world expects from me
