Mom

by Jigisha Singh, age 9
Mom Jigisha Singh is nine years old. She was first introduced to the wonders of writing at age three, when her father Chandan co-authored a book. She loves writing and is growing to love non-fiction. Apart from writing, she also loves music and sports, particularly playing the piano and tennis. She wrote this work to honor her mom and the work that she does, and she hopes that by sharing this, every mom who works hard for her children will know that her efforts don’t go unappreciated. Every mom deserves it.

“The road that leads you down to greatness. / The person who picks you up when you fall. / The person who gives up whatever she has so that you can have whatever you want. / The person who you can depend on.”

              

The road that leads you down to greatness.

The person who picks you up when you fall.

The person who gives up whatever she has so that you can have whatever you want.

The person who you can depend on.

The person who lifts up your family to its highest, even if it means she has to stay at her lowest.

The shoulder you lean on.

The person who shows you your true path when you fall into your friend’s path.

The person who shows you that there is no limit to how great you can be.

The person who cares nothing about her secret struggles, but only focuses on yours.

The one who works endlessly to lift you off your bed of thorns so that you can enjoy your bed of roses, but who cares nothing about getting off her own.

The person who may work you to your limits so that you don’t trail behind her, so that soon, she could be one of the millions trailing behind you.

The person who loves you more than she loves herself.

The person who doesn’t care about how much acknowledgement she gets.

Who wants nothing from you except a bit of love.

 

That person is a mom.
