Mother And Daughter - Poem by mariechantal tuyisabe

Open your eyes widely
And do not be deceived
Gaze at the world and see
How it had grown wings
You can't close your eyes
And forget about the past
For it lasted six months,
...Six months abroad,
...Six months of a cold bed.

Let kniting those
Tiny blue socks
For no one carries
Especcially one whose
Mistakes bear
Unwanted burdens
You can't be
A mother to the world
And I, a sister to the world
For this, is about You and I to blame,
For this, in our Neighborhood, is a shame
Hold your own grand-sons
And forget about being
A mother to the world
Now that you understood,
Burdens of one'sfather
And one'shusband,
Must be remembered
In order to keep
Our eyes dry.
