Mother, Did You See Me? - Poem by Tomi Adenekan
Did you see me slip from your hands
Did you see me roll off your knees
Did you hear the bump
Did you see me adrift in the endless sea
blind, aimless, wondering?
Did you feel the emptiness, the void?
Why did you not save me?
Did you not hear my cries?
Did you not see my tears?
Did you not feel my pain?
But you're mother!
