This is Who You Are to Me:

by a young man in detention

(a poem to my mom on her birthday) 


In my ocean you are a lionfish with radiant colorful spines
because you are beautiful but fierce

In my grassy field you are a pathway straight and clear
because you show me the way

In my galaxy you are a spaceship flying fast
because you stay on course to great things

In my body you are my legs, strong and supportive,
because you’re the reason I keep going

You are my world
