    Good piece. My father died many years ago and it is only recently I've forgiven him for the things he did. (Report) Reply

    Even if we don't under why mothers cry sometimes, we feel the pain in their voices as they cry. Great lessons to all men, their children will grow up. God bless you_man. (Report) Reply

    Boy to a man
    In loving memory to my mother....NICE LINES

    EACH BOY WANTS TO DEFEND
    AND SEND
    CLEAR SIGNAL
    THAT HE WILL COUNTER ANY PROBLEM ON ARRIVAL (Report) Reply

    A poem with a great meaning in it. It's very true, when a boy turn to a man, he will remember, all the pains of his mother. But he will display the hurt, when he grows up and will stand by her. (Report) Reply

    Very sad, but also very beautiful. Your distress here is very clear, and your well deserved pride. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful poem on a very sensitive subject. A man is so often not willing to give respect to his wife but the same man backs out to give space to his son to become a man. This power play so common in social structure. Great write. (Report) Reply

    You have said about the sad feelings of a boy who could not prevent his father troubling the mother; but later as he grows into an adolescent man, he could see the fear In his father's eyes. Nice. (Report) Reply
