momma told me to always try my hardest
and someday i was gonna make a life for myself
you ain't gonna be like me
she says
you ain't gonna be like me
you just ain't
you just can't
i always promised her
sayin' yes ma'am
and she'd sit on her white porch
in her white chair
with her white hair

Wow, that is really good. It's very meaningful. Would you mind reading my poem A Pink Watch, Portal, and Perpetual Sea and telling me what you think? Thank you!
