ROAR

ROAR

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror







Oh, Mother hear my Roar, a roar of Thunder


to stop the rain’s devour


my flood of tears deprive color


bouquets fade like the cinders of a fire


blossoms I grew with my own hands care


hands that left my beauty so dear


beauty she resides with the smallest of Stars


a Sliver of diamond shining in the dark


under a moon of riots and war


Oh, Mother hear my Roar, a roar of thunder





Terry D'Arcy-Ryan

Author's Note

TerryDarcy-Ryan   akaSheerTerror
This Poem was written for my Mother. Memory's of my Mother take me back to a time when women were not thought of as equal to Men. A time when abuse of any kind remained secret and women silent. My Mother would ask for my silence in glances and actual words if angry enough. She wasn't ready for me I was born to Roar. The Love that flows through a generation of Women is woven here in my words for my daughter Natalie, mother Marilee, grandmother Gladys and my special great grand ma Cassy. Death has not changed my heart, you are still are blood of my blood, "Oh Mother, hear me Roar". If you are still reading thank you and God Bless

I'm not sure what to think of this. In my mind I have conflicting interpretations.


It's well written though, very well written I think.

Ellie Qtz, it was an extraordinary roar thank you
Tears of frustration resulting in her roar going unheard or not allowed to be unleased? The tears then killing the flowers she herself grew? I understand squashing a primal howl at the unfairness of it all...am I close? Remember I'm still at neophyte status in reading poetry and this is really deep. And the words flow...not disjointed, they all connect properly for a smooth read.

Its beautifully written, how a womans voice is being deprived from expressing her feel. This is something that is bothering every women even today after all the freedom fights too. The constitution says right to speech but the same constitution fails to make her voice from being heard.
