Mother May I...A NiaG Poem

Updated on March 4, 2012

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

If you'd like to hear my reading of the poem instead, play the video below. There is no video attached, only audio.
