On bended knee – a tome for Queens

Queen.

M’Dear

Bigmama

Mother.

I am one of the legions

who love you with
the warmth
of a thousand
suns –
please accept
these humble words
from your
son.

And accept
forgiveness
for these
Youngbloods
that are devoid
of the glory –

those stories
forged
from the
implements
of selflessness
that is
you.

Queen

I challenge

the obscene supposition

that I am not to marvel

in your presence.
