Oh Mother

Rating: 4.9

Forgive me mother, for I have sinned,
those deeds shamed you and drowned me in guilt.
Forgive me also for those selfish acts,
which ached your temples and burdened your heart.

You birthed me to profess the joy of womanhood,
to share with your seed your myriad moods

The bond between a mother and her daughter is always very special and ten time stronger than the bond between a father and his son. The phenomenon of mother-daughter bond is adroitly explored in your poem along with a desire to help mother's empowerment for exploring feminism after a certain stage in life. Happy to note that such maturity is visible in my own city. Thanks for sharing.10 points.

Mother forgives always to all mistakes of children and nourishes all sons and daughters well. This wonderful and nice poem shared that provokes thought to prevent female children too who are up coming mothers to nourish human society. Wise sharing...10
