The Single Mother

She is a powerhouse
She is an engine
A force to reckon with
That drives the family unit single handedly
She is the sole driver
The lone captain
Who guides her family ship to prosperity
The single mother…

A single mother
Is both father and mother
To her children
A single mother
Is a warrior
A fighter
A survivor
A heroine…

She fights her battles alone
Expecting no favour
But the birth of a new day favours her
I salute the single mother
I cherish the single mother
I celebrate the single mother
She is indeed powerful
She is essential
She is vital
She is more than a woman
The single mother…
