Treasure Island

Rakhi jay

Single Mother

She looked at the kid
With a cold face
A child who reminds her of her haze
A child whom she pretentiously hated
A child who was the part of her body for months
A child whom she bred with her blood

Sucking her breast voraciously
Quenching thirst and hunger
Holding her pearl necklace,
With its tender hands

The symbol of her immaculate trust
Was a symbol of dissolute life for the world
A mistake for which both are to be blamed,
Why do women bear the taunts?
Only because she conceive the child? ? ? ! ! !

The child withdrew his mouth
And looked at her with a contented smile
She kissed his tender face
Tears running from her eyes

She smiled at him and said
'You are my son, my life, my aim
Let the world cry down me
Let the world spit on me
I am your mother
I wont leave u my child, I wont '

    That deep relation betwen the child and the mother, , , the only bond that is difficult to break, , but again never perfect, , a mothers wrath for the child specially when she is too egoist and posssessive may ruin the child, , , do u agree? , , i liked your poem (Report) Reply

    Splendid.It is divine gift after the birth.Never to be
    referred as mistake.Taunts were there even for the
    Sita and mother and other greats.Small identities try and fail
    It is the Character and the truthfulness prevails over time (Report) Reply

Some say the world will end in fire,

I hold with those who favor fire.
