# 'Ma...'

Rating: 5.0
Ma...
.
Without your glass of water
Who would replenish
My midnight thirst?
.
Before dawn who will,
Who will stir my Chocolate
With milk, warm breakfast
.
Before I go to school?
Who will iron
Washed and dried
Beaten wrinkles of
.
My uniform,
And that of my ancestor?
.
Ma, I've grown up.
Alone, lonely
.
Without you
How rough sorrow
How sweet the pain
Wilted weaknessess
.
I have within.
Life is lonely, Ma
Love for strangers
Is as Distant
.
As the wall of a nutshell
That keeps on expanding
A space that keeps on frustrating
The animal kind's thinking.
.
Ma, I've yet another story
Another story to tell yah...
.
