Mothers - Poem by Mereia Namatua

They formed pillars in societies
That are rather patriarchal I must say
Where the men lead
And they are towed behind
They suffered pain in the first intimacy
They suffered again as they give birth
From the cock crows till the sun set
They sweat and bled in their chores
Such strong hearts masked with those fragile face
That endures slap and punch without saying much
So selfless in so many ways
Thinking of putting their kids before their needs
Satisfying them for love
They endure so much
But why are they still valued less
They are our mothers
They are our foundation
We should appreciate them in all the corners of the world
They are the complete expression of love
Mothers are indeed supreme

    Thank You. Mothers are indeed supreme

    Unfortunately a woman's natural ability to organise does also puts them in this position. Yet I grew in a domineering family and then the same in marriage. The men should be ashamed, too power hungry.
