One Ton Son

Updated on December 29, 2018

I wrote this for mother one day. I got up before she did to go too work I wrote this and stuck it in her cigarette pack.

I hope you enjoy this poem.

Don't look back on yesterday
Don't dwell on what's to come
Remember now words we say
Keep this with you- forever and always
when remembering I'm your son

We had our ups and downs
You are most special mom
when you look at me it's beauty you see
Is that any reason to frown?

It was hard to raise me
Trust me I know
I've come a long way mom
You did a great job does it show?


You think you've done wrong,
you haven't, I've come along mom
And still glad to be your son
Still glad you were the one

As we both grow it gets harder
To say words we hold dear
So lets keep our hearts near
Always remember I love you
Keep this with you forever and always
When remembering I'm your son

Never stop believing mom
So encourage me to do the same
So thrilled to have lived under your wing
And to have came suddenly to a heart so warm
Remember, I'm strong and I've grown
Never again to do you wrong mom
As one we stand together I'm your.... Son



--I wrote this a long time ago (Aug 2006) and it's copyright as is all my writing I post here..
This obviously was for my mother cause when I was growing up I was a very, very bad & violent child. Always in and out of jail, drugs & alcohol and I just believed I knew what was best. I absolutely had to write this to let her know shes the best mother in the world and she did what she could. Finally I woke up........CHEERS..=)

      I say your an amazing son

      who keeps it fun

      Paid his price

      Which mom found nice

      We all err to great degrees

      But learn from within not who agrees

      One Ton Son

      You have won

      While pride fills the heart of your mom

      a kind that create tears of joy for her son

      Remember, I'm strong- I've grown

      Never again to do you wrong- mom

      As one we stand together- I'm your.... Son

      Dom, lump in throat

      wanna have your ways to cope

      For me momma was never well

      yet still I put her through hell

      Why is selfish not thinking

      and Heroin, coke and drinking

      I never meant to hurt my mom

      I really thought I was better on the run

      years of hell we share the same

      Reflecting my choices I am to blame

      Dom, my mom would still stand my side

      holding hands with nothing to hide

      But memories remain

      I though no longer insane

      This poem of yours Dom

      touches deep in rhythm of a song

      Thank you

      beautiful poem in also t's truth

      thank you for sharing that
