Written as part of NAIDOC Week Workshop

Mum is Kenya

Mum is the feeling of walking

Mum is the scent of roses

Mum is the taste of Mandazi

Mum is the sound of “are you hungry?”

Mum is pitch black

Mum is a big dark shadow

My mum taught me I have to work hard.

I love you so much and I’m so proud of you for what you’ve accomplished.
