Single Mother Poetry ~ A Single Mother’s Single Reason

Written in praise of single mother’s who have to do the work of two people in order to have a happy, healthy and successful child.




A single mother

Makes her child

With four hands

But supports it with only two.


She fights a fight worth fighting.

The fight is not without pain.

Her pain is not without love.

Her love defines her life.


Single mothers

Have a single goal: To see their child smile.

They have a single reason to keep fighting:

To see their child succeed.


Time is limited in the hourglass of life.

A single mother pours the sand through her hands

Molding every second spent into bricks to build her child

The strongest foundation that she can.


~ Gerardo Campbell

Single mother - Wayne Dyer quote
