Tribute to all Mums | Poem

By my mom was I introduced

Introduced to a world

A world without end

The end from a beginning

The beginning with a cry


The cry that registered my presence

The presence as becoming living

Living by my first suck

The suck of the best breast milk

The breast milk that induces continuity


The continuity of life

The life that eats on demand

The demand for nourishment

The nourishment with love and care

The care that spurs maturity


The maturity into adulthood

Adulthood with responsibility

The responsibility to God and Man

The man that should never forget his source

The source of a protective womb

The womb that encircle a being

A being of a kind

The kind that denote stability

How can I forget your love and care?

Thanks mum!


Happy Birthday mum ! (22nd April)
