My Mom by Christopher Gaumond

If my Mom were a shape she would be a Myriagon because her personality seems round at first, but she really has a thousand sides.

If my Mom were a weather condition she would be a meteor because she suddenly explodes and never leaves anything in the same place.

If my Mom were a question, it would be “What?” because 90 percent of our conversations begin with it.

If my Mom were a punctuation mark she would be a period because she always has to have the last word.

If my Mom were a spice she would be saffron because she likes things that are rare and expensive.

If my Mom were a dessert she would be crème brulé because it’s elegant, but simple and direct.

If my Mom were a place, she would be a banana plantation because she works very hard to give me the things I need.

If my Mom were one of the four elements she would be fire because she is calming when in the hearth, but can be dangerous when she escapes it.

If my Mom were a color she would be maroon because she is rich in feeling, but calming and subtle.

If my Mom had one biggest wish, it would be that I would be able to achieve goals, dreams and potential in this life.
