Mama

A Poem by Olumegbon
"

For all the single mothers out there who are raising their kids on their own, Happy Father's Day

"
It was on the sabbath day we got the call,
Thought death was meant to be away from work,
But the inevitable respects none,
The type of news no woman prays for,
Mother was left with no choice,
The constant crying that stole her voice,
Consolation from different lips,
Temporal mourning vanished while reality set in,
Their words became echoes,
No real actions could amount,
Disappointments weren't meant to make us stay broken,
So she took it as a sign,
To provide bread even when the sun refused to shine,
To never put her faith in any man,
The outcome of her actions was impressive,
The world remembers only men on father's day,
While they forget the women that became fathers.

I am moved by the powerful sentiment of this piece...the words so crudely eloquent yet entirely precise.
Incredibly well written, I love the flow and phrasing, the closing line is so dope!

Ngā mihi maioha (warmest regards)

Powerful and good words shared my friend.
"The world remembers only men on father's day,
While they forget the women that became fathers."
I was raised by a mother alone. AWOL father did little. I liked the story told and shared. Thank you Olumegbon for sharing the outstanding poetry.
