Poem For ‘mama’ - Poem by Felix Onyango
For nine months she carried me in her womb
Went through a lot of pain to raise me.
Discriminated against because of my existence.
Her friends left her, because of the pregnancy
Got disowned because of me.
But still gave me all the love she had for me.
Fed me, clothed me and protected me.
She might at times scold me, but still consoled me.
‘Mama’ I love you.
My father run away
Never wanted to take responsibility
Like a knight she defended me
Hustled just to see me grow up.
‘Mama’ you are special to me
I don’t stand a chance in life
With you, my heart is warm
I am always happy seeing you smile
Thank god for giving me to you as a son.
With affection that she has showered me with
I feel sorry each time I make her angry
I pray never to make you mad
For that will only bring sadness to our home
I love you ‘mama’
And I promise to be there for the both of us.
