The LIFE of my LIFE is gone: A POEM

Updated on December 31, 2012

The LIFE of my LIFE is gone: A POEM

This is a real life story. My heart is broken today December 22nd, 2012 when my Mom (Mrs Chinyere Ubani) passed on. I am still feeling the shock and hurt because my Mama died of a painful breast cancer disease.

Sequel †Φ her death, we tried all forms of treatment and for the fact that she suffered painfully before her death lives my heart bleeding. She was the closest person †Φ me even in our differences and I loved her without compare. She made me. Now I remember all the promises I made †Φ her when I become somebody in life and I just feel weak.

My once plump and agile mama was so devastated by the illness that she grew old overnight, her face wrinkled and her voice became silent echoes (she could barely utter a word). She was a shadow of herself. My eyes peppered in tears each time I looked at her and she would beg me not †Φ cry and be strong for her. She fought seen and unseen forces of evil for four painful years before the hands of death gripped her. ( I am here typing away my emotions and my sister is some meters away in tears like a baby) Mama was a strong woman who believed she would scale through the trial that later choked her life.

Mama, I will fight your fight and be rest assured that you will forever be dear †Φ my heart. My heart bleeds and I am worried that you will not be around †Φ reap the fruit of your labor.

(In her honor, I will write my first novel detailing my experiences, the trials and controversies surrounding her death)

The LIFE of my LIFE is gone: A POEM

†Φ the woman who gave me life

The one who nursed my tender body

The woman who gave me love

The one whose breast I sucked

On your laps I played

You watched my every move

Kissed my every chuckle

Smiled at my first speech

Taught me †Φ walk

Woke in the middle of the night

Lull me †Φ sleep

Through months of agony carried me

Your womb was a safe haven

My dearest angel

My love and everlasting mother

My champion

I see you, beautiful

I salute your courage

I worship your guts

You are my everything

My memory is the store of your affection

Like flashes your goodness keep storming

The joyful moments

Those days of tears and pain

Years of bitter struggle, suffering and sorrow

Together we matched on in hope

Mama I am sad

My face painted with colors of hate

My body smells of bitterness

My heart cries for revenge

My heart bleeds of pure charcoal

Please let this be a dream

Tell me it is not true

Pinch me and tell me it is a hallucination

Somebody talk †Φ me

My eyes shed blood

Face rumpled with anger amid unfulfilled promises

Bitterness unmatched

Even Kokura's luck I couldn't will

Like a withered leaf, you are no more

Gone like the shadows of time

Knees cut by an alien ailment

Breast cut open by a wicked disease


Your voice is gone

Your once radiating body

Old, thin and wrinkled

Your pain obvious even in death

I can't believe you are gone

Please come back

Shake off those pains

Stay with me, for in you I have faith

But like the Mayan prophecy

Doom have eclipsed my future

I am devastated and lonely

Angry and dejected

Restless and conquered

Life is now meaningless.


Reading from the heart of a sober man!
