Reminiscing On Mother’s Day Poem by Sandra Martyres

Reminiscing On Mother’s Day

Rating: 5.0

Torn between my Blackberry
And my little baby
Is already a tough call
But that is not all
As a working Mom
My cup of woes
Often overflows
A sulking husband
A whining baby
And to top it all
A very demanding Boss
Leaving me at a total loss
My head spins not knowing
On whom I should focus my attention
Indeed I must admit
It is to my baby that I generally submit
He who makes the loudest sound
Is bound to make me turn around
Between husband and boss
It is often the lucky toss
In no particular order
Husband can be chided even derided
For not taking up his share
Of responsibility to manage our baby
This baby line does not work with the boss
He never stops reminding me
About the human approach of the company
In allowing me working hour flexibility
In order to support top table diversity
Never a thought for my high levels of anxiety
So in the interest of propriety
I try to do my bit for my family and society

The soft good humour inside apart, your poem tells how much a present day working woman has to adjust to the demands in her daily life...nice read...wish you a happy Mother's Day...10

My hat is off to you madam for you have truly expressed the feelings of many working women in this world that not only work but have children too….even though you may feel tired and beaten up I am sure that you do feel gratified when things are going smoothly otherwise you wouldn’t be doing it…really enjoyed the read, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us…many blessings to you and your family.

Dear Sandra, This is a beautiful depiction of a modern -day-mother torn amogst demands from baby, boss and husband simulteneusly and still running the show. your presentation is so vivid, I will like to call it ' a poetry on celuloid' like Gauder or Satyajit Ray or Roman Polinesky.These lines, in particular, I will lke to quote: 'my cup of woes/ often overflows/a sulking husband/a whinning baby/and to top it all / a very demanding boss' but Sandra'still so in the interest of propriety/ I try to do my bit for my family and society' This is where is your greatness.For that matter all working mothers.A great tribute to Mothers' Day. Keep on writing and keep in touch A-10-from me-Rajkumar
