    Very good poem shows how subtly Mother handled the problem and what a change in the child's perception. The poetic craft is excellent I give 10/10. (Report) Reply

    What a beautiful poem! I hope they include such poems in the curriculum for school students. It would be such a wonderful way to learn about moral values in early childhood. (Report) Reply

    My mother, incredibly sweet, incredibly bright
    Swallowed her anger but asked in a voice, slightly tight
    Please consider for a minute or two
    How you would feel if someone did this to you.
    Deep in my mind, I considered this plight.

    Very touching and very true it is... So sweet of the mother to understand and handle it in a such a good manner..Nicely written with utter care and can feel a mother's love for her son.. God work..Thanks for sharing.. (Report) Reply
