Both Sides Of The Fence, Poetry by Latonia Sears

 Genre: Family

 
Sitting on both sides of the fence
with every waking moment
While bringing home the same bacon
she had to prepare for us

My mother and my father were the same
One unit, one parent to hug
This one individual who filled our house with love

Never upset about the hand she had to play
Making sure me and my brothers had a roof
over our head every day

Never shirking her responsibilities
teaching us to have courage and face our challenges and stay together hand in hand
To always take care of each other in the end
