Don't Push Them All Away

Don't Push Them All Away

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver

Mother

lost child

don't push us all away

your pain is noticed

even accepted

your reaction to life

your anger

your actions

are not acceptable

vehemence drips off your tongue

like acid, it melts into all our minds

lost child

mother

I love you

yes, I do

but can no longer justify

don't push us all away

for good

Featured Review

The love and understanding is prominent in this. Often children don't understand the actions of parents until they become parents themselves and can see from the 'mother/parent perspective' - sometimes parents can't understand their offsprings actions because they have different kinds of pressures on them than when they were kids or than their other kids. Theres a lot of room for mis-communication and misunderstandings.
This is a heartfelt plea for reconciliation and love.
Very moving writing Poppy.

"vehemence drips off your tongue

Very striking image here.

Certainly in cases, there is rift between mother and child, actions and thoughts, but there is a connection which cannot be disconnected.

yes, they push us away not understanding that most of what we do is for their own good...to train, to teach, to protect....but they rebel...i guess i did too when i was younger...guilty as charged for not understanding the logic.

i know now.

This is a sad poem. The last line, Don't push me away for good," crushed me inside. It crushed me because of how sad it truly is when a mother's pain is so deep, she pushes away the people who need her. My mother (and father) is a loving, kind soul. She's 84 years old now and she may not be around forever. I wish for her to see 100 years on this earth though. Thanks for sharing your poem, Poppy.
