Letter To My Mother - Poem by Charles Jagongo

Mummy tell me, did I bother you
While in comfort of your lovely womb
Mummy tell me.

While dawn had opened, and a new world was created
And the first gasps of air, I did, was my cry so loud?
While dawn had opened.

Mummy while nothing, but a helpless bundle
You made my bed and I sucked your breasts for life
Mummy while nothing.

Mummy that you continue, to wish me well
While am grown, your desire that all is well
Mummy that you continue.

My self I pride, a journey with you in a vast universe
A fountain and fortitude, you no worry, provision is mine.
Myself I pride.
