The Only Prince - Poem by PINONDANG SITUMEANG

Rush back to an old home
Love to hear a baby boy crying
A crown prince in the family
Beyond a group of sibling sisters

Sweating days and nights
Up and down hills to the markets
To afford your allowances
Till the highest education

You seated at a high ladder
Lived in a cozy castle
Flying high around the world
While we lived in a simple home

We ask not marry a foreigner
Your pretty niece is waiting
But You preferred an alien
Talk only by hand

Mom wailing a lots
Waiting for postman bell
Looking at an old phone ring
Hoping for a call from the Bank

Wake up in nightmares
Dreaming of prince return home
Tears shed, it was dreaming
Why do you forget us son

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The only son careless of his old parent who afford him till graduate and seated in a high ladder in a Corporate
