Glimpses Of Simplicity And Innocence - Poem by Valsa George
Sad enough, she had a drunk as her husband,
And two famished children, born of their wedlock,
Before the Earth revolved round the sun twice!
Before there was time enough, to know each other!
Torn beyond the limits of endurance,
She had divorced him a couple of years ago,
Only to add more mouths to be fed,
As he came expressing remorse,
Each time her womb was empty!
The little girl watched her young skin,
Across her belly stretching,
Into an enormous mound,
And wondered why it had,
Inflated like a balloon.
She rubbed ‘Tiger balm’
As she had seen,
Her mother applying it,
On her swollen knee!
