He met brilliant Doctor Paul Farmer,
the founder of Doctors Without Borders.
He met the exceptional Maya Angelou,
her voice heard and listened to.
" Who is your hero? ", they questioned.
And he answered, " my mom is".
I felt humbled by his words.
He paid me a wonderful compliment.
I raised him alone,single mom,
for the first years of life.
He was my world, I , his.
I fed him love and books.
I nourished him with my heart.
I was his fan and cheerleader.
He says I know the details,
the wonderful pieces to his puzzle.
He says I sacrificed and struggled,
and I say it was easy,
because I love him, my son.
