The True Mother

The True Mother

A Poem by boygene borice
"

For all mothers and mothers to be, I value Mothers so much. They are treasure in the world

"


Every day she wakes up very early,

Within the dripping cold of dawn,

Sometimes her body shivers until we are afraid,

But she holds on in silence-

She never wants us to have lack.

 

Within the darkest hours of the night,

She goes on her knees,

To converse with the Almighty,

I always hear plead to God in tears,

That our future may be bright.

 

Even though she doesn’t have enough education,

She is more wise and prosperous,

Everything she does is successful,

Sometimes I dare ask her,

But she says it’s God in control.

 

She is never afraid of the wrath of the sun,

Sometimes I pity her too much,

But she says she hates sympathy,

Mostly when she is working for her four sons,

They are her angels that she treasures.

 

She never wants the best for herself,

She spends much to see us shine like stars,

Flourish like roses,

She says she is never ashamed to walk in rags,

As long as her sons are glowing.

 

I have seen people insult her,

They say she is a curse in the community,

But she always overlooks them,

As long as they don’t insult us,

It touches not her heart.

 

Sometimes she goes on hungry,

To see our stomachs full,

She believes it’s better for us to dine,

Because she needs us to grow big like her,

For her age is approaching the end.

 

Even though she is illiterate,

Her wisdom has made us move,

Through the storms,

Even if it made us drop tears,

She was always there to wipe them off.

 

Sometimes I wish I was of age,

To help her fend us,

But I regret that even my bones,

Can’t sustain the pain she holds,

Hope one day I will grow up to help her.

 

She is more precious than gold,

Shines bright than diamonds,

Even if no one loves her,

Since my Dad left for another flower,

She will always remain to be my best.

 

I love you Mum,

You are the woman I will forever adore,

Always in my heart, cherish,

My life, I will live for,

And my soul I will dedicate to.

It is an extra ordinary story of a woman who survived severe damage only to see her children grow. It touched my heart deeply, as a woman, as a daughter and as a mother. No wonder the son turns out to be as grateful as you. My regards to her and you.

A steadfast and worthy tribute to a woman who sounds an awful lot like a superhero...

Mothers always know what's best for us. They love their children more than their selves. Without them we would never be in this world. A beautiful poem dedicated to all mothers. Very touching.
