My Mother, My Rolemodel

My mother is

my idol,

my inspiration,

and

my rolemodel.

 

She didn't come from wealth

but she knew to be grateful

for every single thing she had.

She treated her possessions

with so much care, as if they

were newborn babies.

 

She doesn't have much affluence,

yet she tries to get my brother and I

everything we could need or want,

because she loves us and treats us

like angels and as if every day

would be the last we’d be together.

 

My mother is

my idol,

my inspiration,

and

my rolemodel.

 

She was a star student in both,

academics and athletics,

and is my inspiration to do my

best in everything; whether it be

pushing myself to get grades as

high as the sky or pushing myself

through every physical obstacle

in my way.

 

She is extremely smart, like a

teacher, and stands as my idol

to remind me to pay attention

and go to class, so I can learn

so much knowledge as vast as

the neverending species of animals.

 

My mother is

my idol,

my inspiration,

and

my rolemodel.

She's overcome so much in her

life and is so emotionally strong,

she is like a bull winning a fight

against a lion. I can never be as

strong as her, but I know that if

she got through everything, then

I can get through anything life

decides to throw at me.

 

She is still dealing with problems

that she hides away like a bear

hibernating in the winter, because

her children’s issues are far more

important to her to help us overcome

and solve like a puzzle needing to be

put together.

 

My mother is

my idol,

my inspiration,

and

my rolemodel.

 

There is so much more to say about her,

like how happy she makes me, like sunny weather.

 

She is my school idol,

my inspiration to do and be better,

and my rolemodel for how I should be in my life

and to my future children.

 

My mother is

my idol,

my inspiration,

and

my rolemodel.
