Super Moms by Troy Legette (June 28, 2002):

Super Moms

Looking from the outside at you flying like a solo pilot.
Warmly reminiscing about your prime goals and
dreams before giving birth to Baby Violet.
Hugged in the arms of poverty, alone, and avoided by your cream giver.
On the verge of something good going bad and possibly forever bitter.
Strong in the beginning before Mr. Fine got your head spinning.
Nearly drowning from the choice you made, out in the deep end swimming.
Young but adventurous, a whiz in every class subject.
Promising yourself never to let your little Violet face double neglect.
Making the best of every channel of support while living in the hood.
Providing food, clothing, and shelter the best way you could.
Responsibility is a source chosen before hanging in the club.
Maintaining a steady job is chased instead of money earned from drug.
Determined to overcome any struggles when raising yourself and the baby.
Controlling temptations that make people do
things that are considered crazy.
Building a foundation to one merged with Mr. Right
Who helps guide while at your side through every step, each day and night.
The pressure that rains on your earth is a painful hurt.
But that amazing soil used to absorb those waters reveals your worth.
Cherished by a companion who certainly proves to be someone special.
Pouring that same love giving to little Violet right back into you!

Awesome! Thank you so much for sharing, Troy!

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
