Mama - Poem by Mokganedi Tatlhego
Feats won and still to be, for as long as you do I also believe in me.
Mountain sunlight rays can shine in places with no hills
As long as one tries and reaches, far inside he succeeds
Mama this is what you said to blunt younger me,
Behold this still holds because in you I do believe!
Plights piled upon you by the hands that scribble this verse
Held forever high in your eyes was a look that said the best
For in dilemmas bequeathed by me you saw advance
Of an ever rising kite departed on a noble quest
With your wind in my sails I know I am blessed!
If I was a singer I’d write you a song that never expires
If only a historian, to inscribe more praises I’d never tire
This is not a flattery but my noble and humble desires
To pay tribute to a woman I unswervingly trust was sent from higher
To better my life and let me call her Mama!
