Ask Your Mother

by Alyson Suzanne King

I don’t know. Go ask your mother.

there is no other

that knows as much.

and as such

she’s the one to ask.

Mothers know everything, they know it all.

when you fall

and when you rise

they feel your cries

of pain or joy.

When you have doubts and need the answer

to be a dancer

or a civil engineer

they listen and hear

the desire in your heart.

Why do you think that phrase has persisted

and none have resisted

the implication

that the vocation

of mom is closest to God?
