At the time, I was a five-year old boy
A visit to my aunty, always a joy
My cousin was playing with cars at the back

    Empathy and true compassion are two traits of a human being. Its great that this mother gave these two qualities to her son very early in life...hats off to the mother for her considerate behavior as well.

    The poem depicted the story very beautifully. (Report) Reply

    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
