Young Mother! - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

When the mother is left with young children,
The hands are full and the mind is not dull,
Her eyes are down on the children, who rattle,
Not on the spouse, who suddenly stops to tattle,
Young mother is as busy as a bee, flying around,
The messy house to have the neat hive and honey,
She is not a queen bee to order the servants,
She is a human and needs help and love,
Helpless responsible young mothers are great,
For they have sacrificed their comfort for their brood,
So many professionals gave up their career,
For the love that they have upon their future,
Young mothers of the world, just relax and not to cry,
So much work day in and day out, but you are the Gods,
To provide what your young children need,
To cover them with comfort of loving blanket,
To protect them from all invisible germs and harms,
To plant the seeds of care in their mind to bloom,
Disciplined children are the outcome of your salty sweat,
Continue to sacrifice as our ancestors did.

    A very worthy tribute to mothers and there undying love
    for their children. She wakes up early to take care of
    household chores before her brood arises. She continues
    going even still. Thank God for them. Very good.

    Beautiful salute to motherhood.
    Yes, mothers you are appreciated the world over.
    Now I must return to care for the little cutthroats
    under my charge. I can say that I am Pirate.
