The Chosen Mother

In this edition of Poetry Friday I'm paying to tribute to the original mom--Eve. I know, she gets kind of bum rap for that whole eating from the Tree of Knowledge thing which resulted in the excruciating pain in childbirth but what mom hasn't made mistakes in her life, huh? I know I have. Of course, none of my mistakes led to the fall of Man but who am I to judge? So here's to Eve and to all the mom's out there, Happy Mother's Day!
