What Did I Just Say

What did I just say
My mother’s words
Surely not

The sayings I mocked
Begged to not hear again
Now coming from my lips

I won’t tell her
I know she would laugh
Say I told you so

But the words were perfect
Even sounded wise
Have I been passed a verbal baton

To impart the very
Words of wisdom
That my mother once said
