My mom is always there for me. When I need a shoulder to cry on she is there. When I am in sorrow, she is always there to take it away. She is the reason I am who I am today. She taught me how to behave when I am with other people and how to respect others.
I am who I am because of you: MamQwathi, wenze inzame namatile-tile wokuba ndifunde. Wenza imigudu wokuba ndinxibe ndifane nabanye abantwana ndingahluleki kubo, ungaphangeli unjalo. Uzame ngandlela zonke ukuba ndibe nekamva eliqhakazileyo – and yet you are still trying even now to see me be successful in life.
I fell pregnant, but you never gave up on me, you just supported me. You gave me love, support meanwhile, ndikuphathile mamQwathi. You never hated me, you showed me that you love me and my son. I am who I am because of you, Madikela wam. Ndiyile mbokodo ndiyiyo ngenxa yakho Ntswayibane.
My mom is really my role model. She is a real imbokodo, iqhawekazi lam. When I think of what role she has played in my life I become happy and thankful for having her. I am who I am because of her.
