The Umbilical Cord Connection

The Umbilical Cord Connection

A Poem by Zipho_D
"

Dear Ma, this is for you. Love, your son.

"

The umbilical cord connection

Leaving you behind hurts me. I’m

Restless now. My eyes are full of tears now.

I just wish I could stay in your arms mom.

The idea of walking out from home degrades

Me. Am I too weak? Or maybe the umbilical

Cord connection we have is unbreakable?

 

I can still hear your words echoing my

Head. The worry you had before I left.

I guess I take after you because when you

Asked if I’m okay I just said yes. I don’t want

You feeling the same pain I feel. As odd as it may

Be but I want to protect you from my misery.

 

Kiss everyone at home for me. Tell them I love them

The kids, sis, and please pray for us. I guess I

Have to figure a way to be strong and make

You all proud. Although I can’t lie, leaving home

Brushes off my smile.

You express your feelings in a straightforward way that shows us how you feel with strong details that are relatable, and yet also stated in original way, such as the title of your poem. I love the way your poem starts off with missing mom & then grows to include the whole family. Sometimes the mom in a family has much influence over how the rest of the clan feels toward one of it's members (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
