MOTHER – A POEM (Commemorating Mother’s Day)

13 May

You went through pain

Sacrificing in strain

Not minding whether there will be gain

And unsure whether I will be a vain


Loaded with load you knew not

Protruding belly of a strange carriage

With an overt façade

Regionalised by creasing countenance


A suppressed agony

That the loaded load was tasky


From pregnancy to labour room                     

Prenatal to postnatal

My infancy to adulthood

Were relics of greatest sacrifice.

Thank you Mama, for giving me life.
