Cassondra Dick - My Best Friend

My Best Friend
By Cassondra Dick, 11th grade
2014 Merit Award

Mom,
Mountain of desire,
River of passion,
Fighting to stay on her feet.
A woman of elegance and wisdom,
Showing the world her bravery and confidence.
Mom,
Pocket of anxiety and sorrow,
Hiding emotions in a bottle,
Until the bottle bursts and breaks.
Mom,
Book of journey,
Highway of stubbornness.
Living life with her head up high.
A woman of humor,
Making days brighter.
Mom is my best friend.
