Cool Mom

Renay Intisar Jihad – Welcoming our Guest Writer

Cool Mom

unhandlin’ things
just lettin’ go
of all those things
I think I knew or know
‘bout love,  life,  livin’
& naggin’ cravins’
I’m no wannabee
bein’comfy in
my own brown skin
 
unhandlin’ things
for now, ‘tis good
to just be here
in the now, not the should
 
gonna kick up my feet
& read a book
not a “how-to” book
somethin’ funny & good
 
be lazy as hell
no one bet-not say nothin’
sleep as late as I want
even eat in bed often
 
gonna swim in a lake
with my clothes off, too
not for exercise
but for sensations brand new
 
gonna shop at the mall
not for a “minimizer” bra
or a tummy-thinnin’ girdle
or a “sliminizer” dress
somethin’ simple, but loud, will do
long as it’s comfortable
 
share with my hubby
a ton of love
give to my family
go beyond and above
 
get on a plane, go
to who knows where
get on a train, go
to who dares care
 
just stroll, crack jokes, ease
my way through crowds
talk soft, talk junk
talk loudly, talk punk
doing whatever
I damn well please

A Mother’s Day Prayer at 1:11

Holy One we give thanks for those who serve as mothers in our lives.
For mothers whose loving arms nurture, protect and support us.
For mothers whose footsteps we follow and shoulders we lean on.
For mothers who are shepherds of your people.
For mothers whose spirit continues to feed us.
We give thanks and praise in Your Holy name we pray. Amen
