Love Behind Bars - Poem by Raniyal Niyada
Edging near the grill
I sit on the floor
A hand from behind Pulled me back
She says I always stay too near the grill‘
Be careful, they are humans,
She warns me often
Putting out her care and love in scoldings
Aye she is my mother
The epitome of love.
My thin skinny limbs
Wraps around her, and she smiles
Lighting up my world.
She narrates me stories
Of her days of youth and freedom
She tell me my dad was the knight
Who gave up his life to save her from the trap?
But alas he failed, She ends the story with a sigh
A tear gleaming in her eyes all the while
Behind this bars, inside the four walls
She is the one who shows me the world
In her I see the apathy of my kind
The ferociousness of the warrior my dad was
And in her I see the hopes of tomorrow
The ocean of love, boundless
And in her I dwell for molding me
For nothing in the world
Carve better than a mom's hands...
