"Couldn't Be Prouder" by Barb Hensongispsaca
I couldn't be prouder if I tried,
she was always there for me.
She gave her life, through her stress and strife
to make sure that I had a degree.

My Mother's life was hard when Dad died.
She had to raise me alone
through her stress and strife, she gave her life
as we both had to face the unknown.

She taught me to have courage and pride.
She raised me the best she could.
She gave her life, through her stress and strife
she made sure I would know what I should.

The book continues with Boys Will Be Boys. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Topic: Pride
Something or someone you are proud of.

This week I thought we'd try - The ZaniLa Rhyme, a form created by Laura Lamarca, consists of 4 lines per stanza.
The rhyme scheme for this form is abcb and a syllable count of 9/7/9/9 per stanza.
Line 3 contains internal rhyme and is repeated in each odd numbered stanza.
Even stanzas contain the same line but swapped.
The ZaniLa Rhyme has a minimum of 3 stanzas and no maximum poem length.
Pays one point and 2 member cents. Artwork by cleo85 at FanArtReview.com
