Certain Words


I heard the story
We all did
I heard the story so many times
That certain words were stuck
In my mind for days
“Courageous”
“Brave”
“A true hero”
No one will ever hear the name
Zeavion Dobson
Without also thinking those words
But as a mother of a son
I can’t help but wonder if
That’s enough
So please know
That on the night it happened
I watched my son as he slept
I placed my hand on his chest
And I hoped for him to grow
To be the kind of man
That your son was.
