ODE TO MY BREASTS...by b. Malin

A LIFELONG QUEST...

This one's meant to poke fun at only Me...and meant for a "mature audience"...When I was a little girl growing up on Long Island...I called them "Bubbies" and was always very conscious of my older sister's and cousins Breasts, and marveled at the way they looked... And looked forward to having a pair of my own...This is my story...My Poem.

When I was twenty-one...

I still had none.

I was a "Carpenter's Dream"...

Flat as a Board!

A Pirates Delight...

A Sunken Chest.

I'd heard it all...

When I was Thirty-one,

I started to develop some...

But not enough for my babies,

to nurse from.

When I was Forty-one...

They were starting to grow...

But still not enough, so the "Wonder Bra"

Became my second best friend.

And my Mother said, "Someday you'll grow,

You'll be like me", she said pointing proudly

To her Breasts, that I adored.

"Be grateful that your Breasts are "Petite"

And not hanging down to the floor".

Isn't that just like a Mother...Whom I so adored.

When I was Fifty-one,

They were starting to come into their own.

And now "Years" after that...

They have become a WOW!

With CLEAVAGE to boot...It's such a hoot!

Just the other day, LoverMan looked and then,

Looked again at my Naked body and said... "WOW"!

"Where did you get those "Beautiful Breasts"?

I just smiled, as I pulled him to my Chest...

And silently Thanked my Mom,

Who was no longer alive.

But I just knew, that she knew...

That I had Arrived!

I know a woman who has Huge boobies.She goes bra-less and lets them hang.After many years one booby said to the other

"If we keep hanging around like this...People are gonna think we're NUTS"! :)great poem!Thanks!

Cheaptrick, I'm laughing ...That was funny...thanks for enjoying this one!

Cheryl, I guess I just wanted to have some fun on such a "touchy" subject.

Epigramman, that's what I was trying for "a little wit" on something we women take so seriously. Thanks for enjoying!

Ohh very witty, I guess there is hope for me then. Being last behind the door when breasts where handed out, I always took comfort in knowing I wouldn't have spaniels ears at 50 lol

Hey Bluestar, I just wanted to show that there is always HOPE...and it was never too late. Thanks for enjoying my Wit!

Hi Fossillady, the sad part is the girls of today would have had a Boob job at age 21! But it was a fun write to poke some fun at me! Thanks for enjoying it.

If you think that your chest is flat,

be grateful for the air in your tires;

If you feel that your hair is sparse,

be grateful it's not growing on your arse;

But a man who questions his longevity,

will remain miserable for eternity.

Wow! This really put a smile on my face. Thanks for sharing this personal experience.

Living in a city surrounded by silicone, saline, & now "gummy bear gel" breast implants, I am proud to have my small & natural breasts. :-)

I had a friend that wished all her life she was you.They got too big and became a real pain in the butt.So years later she had them reduced.She is so happy they are little fruits instead of big giant yams.Life is funny. You just never know.

Well, Dream On, I'm so glad Mine are now Average...Nothing over the TOP (if you'll pardon the Pun). And when my Granddaughter now complains about hers, I just smile and say, wait, and see!

Had to revisit this piece, because it's the first poem I read by you. And secondly because of the tingling feeling I get when reading it. Linking to our erotic and sensual collection...

This brought a chuckle from the Saddle. I am a breast man and a butt man, however breast's first. I love how you went from stage to stage and finally ended up with quite the pair:0)) to bad you couldn't display them here, he he. Heck I had a mother-in-law who was 60 at the time I was 32.

And every time I would pay a visit,she would pull me aside and whip on of her mammarys out that she was so proud of because they were so large and pull my head down to try and brush them in my face. Dam she was a wild wild mother in law. May she RIP with her mammary's Lol....Loved this hub made me ROFL....

Oh A.A. you are too Funny...Ok, so now that you've come back, could read something Current? You Devil Man You! So Glad I made the Link to the Erotic and Sensual Collection!

You are also too Funny Saddlerider, did you two Talk, (you and A.A.) or do two "Creative Minds" just think alike?? This is what I Love about Hub Pages, the "Sophisticated Talk"...Ha, Ha!

b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 5 years ago Author

You know Saddlerider, even as a child, I talked about them...much to my Families Horror. MY Sister and I were living with an Aunt & Uncle at the time, and going on a Family vacation to Asbury Park. I made it the topic of Conversation... What can I say...Now I write about them! All in Good, Clean, Fun!

B. Malin, I have to congratulate you on such a fantastic poem. Made me smile.

However, I also have to scold you on one of your earlier comments, suggesting that today's young women would rather have a boob job than wait for their breasts to come in. I'm 18, and have no breasts to speak of. Would I consider surgery? Not a chance. I think that would be quite vain and disgusting.

I don't mean to sound irked, I merely want to assure you that not all of today's youths are spoiled, self-involved, image-obsessed bimbos.

Again, a truely brilliant poem, and I can't wait to check out the rest of your work.

Though at the first glance, I thought it is little amusing, but getting into the ode takes me into the profound depth. The imagery is very wonderful.

Hi b. Malin

Your mother was right. ;-)

Woman with small breasts want big ones and vice versa. Not me , I am happy with what I got. So far they are not hanging down to my knees.

Voted up across the board.

Have a good evening. :)
