Some parents leave their children behind at a critical age .Leaving them to face life with its ups and downs alone. This is a cry from a child to his mother.
35) MomHow would I put this weary head on the pillow,
And dream of a singing willow.
If it's swarmed by troubles and loads.
How can these eyes relax and seal?
If they are red, veined and can't sleep.
The body of mine is screaming for rest.
As a bird searching for its nest.
But when I recall what you did,
Insomnia does me arrest.
Mom you have left me with brothers to feed.
When I was still young and weak.
Knowing you were divorced, and
since that dad disappeared.
You went with the other man,
Moved to a new house and land,
Leaving me behind on fire,
And our home was in collapse.
At a glance all what you have done in the previous years;
From caring, loving and watering your seeds
Wasn't better than an ash if you believe.
After deciding to be selfish and self-absorbed.
Deserting your children and breaking your oath.
When they didn't have a home but your arms.
When they didn't feel but your warm hand.
And you were for them the mom and dad
I'm sad that once in my life I called you mom.
