Mother Mary

Updated: Dec 14, 2022

Mother Mary loved her little brown boy

Who the world would not know how to love


Mother Mary nourished her little brown boy

He himself would prepare a feast for all hungry and poor


Mother Mary watched her little brown boy grow up

Dreamed big dreams of all he would come to be


Mother Mary treasured her little brown boy

Others would only ever see as a threat


Mother Mary embraced her little brown boy

Even unto horrific death

Like only mothers of color know to do


Mother Mary laid her little brown boy down

Grief her sole companion

Comforted by the promise that death does not get the final say
