Book Excerpt

This is an excerpt from my book.A poem that I wrote for my mother call "A Son's Best Friend" A man's best friend is his dog. A woman's best friends are diamonds. A son's best friend is his mother. I am very proud to call my mother my best friend. She's the epicenter of my life. I love her so much. I thank her for giving me wings to fly. I thank her for giving me glasses to see. Without her,I would be nothing. She never stabs me in the back. Being there for me whenever I'm down so that I can get back up. She tries so hard to raise this prince into a king. Having her in my life is the greatest award. I'm grateful to have such a beautiful and caring mother. Every son should appreciate his mother's love. Don't ever take it for granted.
