My Sweet Mother - Poem by Tony Adah

My mother who gave me a nipple
Sweet as honey
And handed me over to the wicked world
Where I have tried to be a man
Shackled and free
But an orphan
O' my mother!

    The poem is a beautiful commentary on the mother-son relationships as well as a man's trials and tribulations in this heartless world particularly in his growing years. (Report) Reply
