The only true is what lies within us, know this and nothing is impossible.

Momma Thank You

Momma, there's much that I'd like to say,
But you're in a world that's so far away.
When you look at me Momma, you no longer see,
The baby girl you gave birth to, the baby girl that is me.
How can I tell you what I feel in my heart?
When we have been pulled so far apart.
Momma, thank you for giving me life,
And standing beside me through all of the strife.
I know it was hard, there were days it was bad.
Trying to rear me without the help of a dad.
You taught me to stand, to walk and to run.
Times were tough, but I was your baby girl.
You lived through trials, triumphs and tears.
Eight children, it had to be rough.
But you showed us when necessary, you could be tough.
Momma, thank you, for the lessons you taught.
You showed me that character could not be bought.
Now, many years later, our roles are reversed,
the scenes we play now, we could not rehearse.
Oh there are times when I stumble and fall,
But I pray God, help me to answer the call.
But there is one thing that will always be true.
I love you so much. Momma Thank you.

Here is something written by Lao Zi (a Chinese philosopher)in the Dao De
Jing:
Between Heaven and Earth,
There seems to be a Bellows:
It is empty, and yet it is inexhaustible;
The more it works, the more comes out of it.
No amount of words can fathom it:
Better look for it within you.

Personally i think cummings wants the reader to realize that the truth is
right in front of you, instead of loosing track or looking for it in the
wrong places, rather reflect, and the truth will reveal itself - its a
rather simplistic admittance
