Kaila George - Poem by Ralph O'Grantson

Into the womb i was birth
Put me back
Love from no one I get, like a slave black
They eat me up like a quick snack

Inside my womb like a hearth
They take me brutally
My life spins cruelly
Oh take me back somebody

Inside this round called earth
I am prisoner to filthy secrets
hidden like blood smeared on red roses
All this dirt under white sheets

In this lifetime, What's my worth
I am the story of love
I am the kid that survived the shove
Today i live free, White as a dove


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is dedicated to my mother.friend.and teacher Kaila George
She's been through it all.The struggles the pain and the shame, now all she knows is happiness, always head high.she is love in flesh.

    A study in survival, strength and beauty in motherhood. Protecting and teaching her young, that they may thrive despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Ralph, well written. I commend you. (Report)Reply

    Ralph, this is a magnificent, and bread-warming tribute to someone who has obviously had a most auspicious impact on your life, despite ostensibly the many Crosses she has beared...I have read several of her own works and conversate with her about this site and poetry in general...Both of you have the gift of Silent Word and the above tributive to a Mom, Mentor & Friend quite worthy of such potentate praise is proof solid...Nice Work! ~FjR~ (Report)Reply
