Another Daughter~

Another Daughter~

A Poem by Tahsin.Z🍁
"

.

"
Another twilight's gone mother 
Your child saunters behind 
Late autumn serves icy air
Blithers gothic tune to my ears

Another meal is cooked mother
Cabbage in the prior night's broth
Lord gave me a wilful tongue
Posh delicacy it longs

Another hope knit mother
Your yarns are though so thin
Our anorexic legs fall off-track
This place is of tyres and engines

Another daughter find mother 
My fever isn't a duck-soup
Drift me away after I be no more
Burial costs, people are aloof

In your reply to Chris, you wrote, 'The pain of seeing their children hungry is more painful than the hunger of the children,' Never has a truer word been spoken

There is a brand of Iranian Caviar called Almas, that retails at over
$30,000 per kilogram; it is the worlds most expensive food.

According to the charity 'Save the children,' it costs just 50 cents a day to
prevent a starving African child from dying.

Only one word suffices for how our world has come to this. Obscene!

Beccy.

Beautiful words. Naturally a writer.

I won’t express any further compassion for others less fortunate - you have done that most admirably. Actually you have expressed the very fine notion to prefer dignity for those less fortunate. A strong command of words and poetic delivery. Well done!

Let's praise ordinary man and women and child. This is what spoke to me here. You keep authenticity or real life but you also keep your inner poetic voice. Your message is clear at my eyes. There are so many poor people who cannot feed own children and situation is getting more down. I like your tone when you serve us simple poetic meal. But when we have to listen and see . And when we listen and see finally our hearts getting open. This is power of real poetry . Well done.

Is it the top 3% of the richest people who basically run the planet.
It's always been the haves and the have-nots and it will never change. Unless there's a world order to fix things which I don't see anytime soon. 21st century and people are still starving, it's a stain on humanity.

They're starving and we are fulfilling the cravings and it goes on. Thank you Paul!😇
emotional and filled with melancholy! the stuff of dreams added up to the bitterness of modern life. This place is indeed of "Tyres and Engines". beautifully described. somehow reminded me of "Mother" by Pink Floyd... I really enjoyed reading your poems. you have your own style and speak from the heart. Nothing beats that! I wish you an endless supply of creativity. Always :)

Your compassion-filled words go deep in me. The harshness of life comes through. I'm left counting my blessings when some live such a threadbare life, devoid of basic comfort and security. The sting of poverty is so filled with pain, it shortens a life and fills it with misery each moment.

If only some people realized that, they wouldn't whine of depression and pain every day on their full bellies and their internet luxuries! Live one day with starvation and disease and they'll know! Where lies the tenacity of the human spirit.

Full marks to you for this hitting poem, Tahsin...

We are indeed Tahsin, lucky to have what others can only dream of. Yet even in our luck we can feel unlucky not to be on the next rung up, where you don't have to look at the price before buying. I wonder if it keeps going until you feel unlucky only to have one helicopter, private jet, holiday island....
Yet what is all of that without a mothers love?
Perhaps they aren't the poor ones after all 😀

The have and the have nots. It has always been that way and how wretched that must be for mothers everywhere who want the best for their children. Even more wretched for those who can't feed their young. A powerful poem, and yes the Internet is a luxury to many dear poet.
