Because (For My Mother)


BECAUSE (FOR MY MOTHER)

 

Because i’m difficult
not fooled easily
of my own mind
quick witted
smart
a smart ass
fiercely independent and always want to remain so

Because it wasn’t always this way
Because i wasn’t always this way

Because i wasn’t confident
wasn’t sure
was foolish
didn’t listen
failed again
tried again
never gave up and don’t intend to

Because it wasn’t always this way
Because i wasn’t always this way

Because i’m an artist
a writer
a filmmaker
creative
imaginative
thought differently and will continue to do so

Because it wasn’t always this way
Because i wasn’t always this way

Because i’m you in a different time
under different circumstances
under different conditions
you the second time around
your long hours
your sweat and tears
the sum of your sacrifices connected by blood muscle and bone

Because it wasn’t always this way
Because i wasn’t always this way
