Oh Mother ! Poem

Updated on July 14, 2018

I w­­­as sowed in a belly

Where my Spirit and body was formed

Without legs or hands but with a head

I became the form of a monster

Knowing nothing but to eat and sleep

Yet, I was carefully nurtured to growth

I can’t help, but to say

Oh mother!


Becoming a Little man

My world was no longer comfortable

I just must find another

With great strength, I ruptured my home

Not knowing the great pain I’ve caused

Yet, my arrival was anticipated with great Joy

I can’t help, but to say -

Oh mother!


An entrance to my new world

Not knowing what to expect

I stayed back to prepare for the worst

But a force pushed me out

And I cried, I’m not ready yet

Yet, I was welcomed with an embrace

I can’t help, but to say -

Oh mother!



As a little man, that’s a baby

Not knowing what I need

But sense a desire

And I cry, what is wrong with me?

Well, that’s the only thing I can do

Yet, the same person fulfilled my desire

I can’t help, but to say

Oh mother!


Growing to a young man

Having been schooled, following order

But unaware of the adulthood sphere

Witnessing strange developments

My world is now as if it has ended

My peace was stolen in silence

Yet, she came to my rescue

I can’t help, but to say

Oh mother!

As a full grown man

Can I forget the embrace in joy of entrance?

But now distance have separated us

And duty have trapped me

I journeyed to see her

Seeing her warm smile and embrace

Made me remember her love and pain

I can’t help, but to say

Oh mother!

    My mother was an interesting person but not a mother. That is why words like yours are important to me.
