Mother’s Love

Mother’s Love

As she looked at him and cried
Bringing out the feelings buried deep inside
But it seems no one would understand
Her little child had transformed into a beast that the society could not stand
So he has been asked to go
To a world where his sins can be atoned
But who can stop the mother from crying
Pouring out her love for the child from deep inside

The Strong Willed Child

Posted on Updated on


The Strong Willed Child

The child sits in her room and cries alone
She just wants to stay at home
Where she is loved and wanted
Not like the school which she thinks is haunted
With spirits that are hell bent to torment her
Calling her names, her classmates tease and mock her

But her parents would not understand her pain
They tell her that she needs to go to school, for education needs to be gained
But what about the nasty kids and bullies
Who make her life a hell, truly

So what if she is not the popular child around
The one who is voted the best and given the beauty crown
Does it mean she needs to be hurt everyday
By others calling her rude names, that echo in her mind night and day

Then she realizes that her mother is right
It’s her life and she needs to fight
There will be people pulling her down with all their might
But the true winners in life are not the prettiest but those who do what is right

She decides she doesn’t need to conform to any group
To mimic all the mean children and be a part of their troop
She’ll focus on her studies and be brave and strong
And will no longer worry about the bullies and be headstrong…

The Sad Child

Mother sitting with a child
A piece of paper in hand and tension in her mind
She is sad, she is angry
She can’t understand why
Her daughter won’t try
And learn her lessons for exams
Is it really so difficult – she cries out and asks…

She really wants her child to succeed in life
Have good education, get a good job and lead a comfortable life
But the child is probably too young to understand this formality
Without getting good grades, you won’t succeed – that unfortunately is the stark reality

Her daughter, a seven year old child
Gets scared and begins to cry
And replies…
I study hard and learn my lesson, mother
But get confused while writing the exam- was it this or the other?

She looks at her mother and feels sad
Her mother is disappointed in her and thinks she’s bad
She really wants to do well and make her mother proud
If only her mind would work well in exams and not have so many doubts

She is really a nice girl,
Friendly with all the kids in the park
It’s a shame that she is evaluated on just the marks
Her mom says that not scoring good grades will make her a failure in life
Realizing this, she feels distraught and begins to cry…

Joker

The child looked at him and smiled
The bright smile, the twinkle in her eyes
Everything about her made him cry

He smiled back and carried on with his work
As he fumbled and stumbled, visibly disturbed
He tried again and down he fell
And she laughed hysterically, her face turned red

But there was something in her laugh that made him cry
For this child was suffering from a deadly disease inside
Thinking of that his throat went dry
God only knows how long she’ll live and when she’ll die
But he was a joker and it his job to make her smile
Make as many moments enjoyable before she dies…
