This is a song i wrote for my mom. She had a stroke. She loss her memory, she can't talk, she can't walk. She forgot who I was, forgot my name. And everyday it's like that. I just pray she gets better, I pray before she leaves me, that she remembers who I am. And I dedicate this to her. I'm going to make her proud. I just hope she can see that before she goes. I put my all into this.

-Verse 1-
Have you ever seen a man scream out loud
For someone he loved who always made him proud
Is laying on the ground, shes gone, forever lost
All this man carries, is his only moms thoughts

And hes trying to hold back
Trying to think back
All the things that
Things that ever went bad
This man momentarily thinking all facts
Trying his best to not puruse
in any kind of counter-act

He's clinching his fists
Squeezing his moms wrist
Praying for forgiveness
Hoping his mom eternal bliss

His eyes go blind
The man loses his mind
The Lord tells him, my child
Just One Step at a time

He hears the words and takes it
Promises the lord he'll never break it
These words to him are sacred

He tries to stay sane
But all he has is memories of pain
Taken in vain
This message repeats inside his brain

-Chorus- x2
The lord gave me a mother who cares
Even for a son, ashamed to look in the mirror
On late nights, a mother who hears
Her son in terrors
A mother would bare, listen and share, a mother in tears

-Verse 2-
I know you lost your memory
along with sensitivity
And everyday im praying
And i hope you gain the energy
to be like how you use to be
to love and trust and care for me
I pray for a day
that hopefully you'll remember me

I know this isn't purposely
I know you got a lot of pain
it's tearing up inside of me
To know that you forgot my name
What can I do to pull you through
The doctors say you'll leave us soon
The people say don't worry
she's watching from the skies and the moon

I sit here writing lyrics
my thoughts, i can barely bare it
I'm not ashamed to share it
relating those who hear this
Somtimes I get those moments where I'm lost for words
Cursed and it hurts, I just wish I could put time in reverse

I'm giving my all, I'm trying best
I'm pushing and I'm putting myself to the test
Will I make It?
I remember hearing, you use to tell me, make it loud
I just hope before you leave, i get the chance to make you proud

-Chorus- x2
The lord gave me a mother who cares
Even for a son, ashamed to look in the mirror
On late nights, a mother who hears
Her son in terrors
A mother would bare, listen and share, a mother in tears

Straight from the heart man, my condolences. I havent heard someone rap genuinely in a long time. You can tell whos who in this game.



Your mother has to be the most lucky woman in the world to have such a blessing song like you. The beat is great. And so is the lyrics. But I want to say something.
Why the hell did you guys find khay8's post useless? Would you guys rather have your own beloved mothers die a agonizing long death or a quick painless pass by? I bet you clueless idiots would rather let your mother's die in eternal pain. Yeah go ahead and rate this down. I bet you Newgrounders would do that.


Love it stay strong my boy


You're mother is a lucky woman to have you as a son. These kinda of songs remind why I love hip hop (and art in general) so much. The hook is straight up powerful; so much passion. I will pray for your mother's health bro.
Keep up OxyJin.
