My Mother

A Poem by christina sherin
"

This poem is about a mother's love towards her family.It describes how independent and with how much determination ,she raises her children.

"
                                     MY MOTHER

The lamp of the family is mother,
The light of the family is mother,
She is the one who weaves the family,
With love and compassion.

A flower that always blooms,
Spreading happiness across families,
Wipes up her children tears,
When they are in distress.


Her toil for her family never sheds,
A loving mother compared to god,
God has given her as gift to me and you,
So cheer up and be glad

Your poem is well-stated in support of mothers everywhere. I've never been a mother, but I have the highest respect for mothers becuz of the way they sacrifice so much to put their children first. I like the way your message starts with the lamp metaphor, then ends with the God comparison, becuz both are beacons of enlightenment, encouragement, & guidance.

As you continue writing, I encourage you to try crafting original metaphors instead of a line like: "A flower that always blooms" -- such lines have been written hundreds of times. Even if you want to stay with the "flower" metaphor, show me more about this flower, so I can really picture how it embodies the mom. For example, it smells sweet or it tickles our noses when we're feeling down. Reach a little further to express your message by using the senses, so we can see & feel & smell & hear & taste what you mean.

A lovely little ode to your Mother. Such odes do not need to be groundbreaking to express their intent and purpose.

The first piece of work i have read of yours. A simple beginning that will become transformative with time.

Keep writing.

A simple and sweet piece...it is a known fact that God cannot be everywhere so he sent an angel in form of mother. One could relate to this poem.
A nice write. Keep writing :-)
