Mama, copper brown
Hair shining, curl
Hands are strong
Full of tears, tortured
Rather die then cry
Mama, beauty
Sadness overcome
Run, too long
Her feet bloody sore
Mama, you run too long
Copper brown beauty
You run too long
Ain't you tired

I wrote this poem to describe my mom because she has gone through and seen alot of things that still linger with her.
