black mamasFor the moms who play board games with their kids instead of bed games with men, the moms who try their best to turn a house into a home instead of spending hours on the phone or the internet trying to get the attention of strangers, the moms who think of their kids first before posting a picture online or putting something out there that makes them look less than a lady, for the moms who understand that focusing on trying to make your kids look fly will only turn them into future jailbirds, the moms who dare to be Walmart or Payless or Dollar Store moms even when other people want to clown you or your kids, the moms who never really get a chance to go out because they are busy trying to make sure their kids have a bright future, to THOSE KINDS of moms who can’t afford extensions or nails or knock off purses, or weed or Pa’tron or looking like they ready to get their party on, to the plain ole “Gotta just take care of the kids I brought into this world no matta wut promises a man makes” kinda moms, I want to tell you how much I love you… because that is the kind of mom who raised ME. -Neo Blaqness
