My motivation

I wake up every morning,

I see my Mom smile,

My Daddy had passed away,

Its been awhile,

My Mom says she's not tired or hungry from work,

But inside, I know she's very hurt,

I'm just a Senior in High school, graduating soon,

I wish I can help her, but I have problems of my own,

Finals and college applications, 

Stressing because of school,

But then I think of my Mom's smile, 

I try harder,

I get better, 

She's my motivation.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
