Success on a Mother’s Day

My Family ask where is success without cash

I reply “happiness fits a lifelong task to help others left to pass”
Working hard for the menial
where less still bless as equals

Pops doesn’t listen to Hip Hop
but knows where the best places are to shop
He knows life is hard, and we must work harder to stay on top
truth in his history’s saga,
as a father
married to my mother
brought me here

(Happy Mother’s day
this time I gave her a degree)

Dear dearest ones sincerely
love has no boundaries

exemplified by home cooking

tasting my sister’s pizza specialty
while i used to make dozens daily
I still can’t best her talent in artistry

success cannot be measured monetarily
similar to character and integrity
It is what we make of the label
as we ladle another soup for dinner at the table

Ingredients and techniques are key
timing and expediency
much thanks for the lessons of my families teachings
for there are many families in need of feeding
and this is just the beginning
