I'Ll Be Back Mama. - Poem by DICKSON MSETI

I left you lying on the floor,
slowly i started to crow,
and i kept my steps very low,
decided to leave my home.

I know you cried a lot when you wake up,
didn't know which way i went,
Always praying for me to be safe,
I had a desire to sleep on the bed.

you asked our neighbors where i went,
searched everywhere looking for me,
bring me home for your protection,
but i needed a balanced diet,

Mama i loved you but i didn't,
I know your hurting inside for me,
just keep your breath and wait,
as i won't stop fighting till i get.

It's too cold out here mama,
and I feel so weak mama,
am suffering for hunger and thirsty mama,
but I am a tireless fighter mama.

just be strong and think positive for me mama,
dry your tears and remove your negativity mama,
just wait and see how I'll rise up mama,

    Before you leave,
    You felt what your mother will feel
    And you left with tears.

    You're good son
    You are blessed
    By your mother,
    You’ll always to be praised
    You felt what she would feel.

    It echoes your cry throughout the universe. Emotions are so high tempered it touches the reader to cry for your departing. Fight and keep promise poet.

    a balanced diet did you say - and mama i'll be back, after i get the balanced diet. Quite deep and inviting, a whole book here.
