This poem speaks of mothering done right, empowering a daughter to emerge from her cocoon and find her wings…

Thanks Maa! Trust me, you have done a good job!

In the nights of agony, you were my solace

Your comforting words Maa, led the flame burning!

All my fears, inhibitions disappear, the moment I think of you,

I know we all have to walk our own path,

but thanks Maa for being my torch-bearer

I know, my restlessness always worried you, still you never showed,

“Come on, you can do it”– this is what you roared.

You know Maa, my friends say that I am so tough,

They queue up to take my advice and call me to solve their problems,

That very vulnerable and sensitive girl inside me peeps out and applauds-

and I can imagine your face brimming with pride & joy,

I chuckle to myself “Ah! What a transformation!”

You nurtured me with rich values and ethics,

You taught me to trust, when the whole world seemed despicable,

You taught me to be compassionate and to love,

I believe, this has really worked,

I can let go hard feelings so easily, and I can breathe…

I breathe to be free, I breathe to be at peace, I breathe to live my passion.

I am able to stand up for myself and for the things I feel are right,

Nothing can crumble my self-belief, nothing can deter my confidence,

I am no more brittle, nothing can break me down,

I breathe to aspire what I desire, I breathe for my ‘continuous evolution’

I promise Maa, I will always keep my conscience alive

See Maa, I am growing up and have grown up all these years,

I’ve captured my doubts, I have fought with my weaknesses,

I’ve followed my dreams and have explored my strengths….

Really Maa, your cocooned caterpillar is slowly growing into a butterfly,

A butterfly with spread out wings and multiple colours of life.

Maa, now you can heave a sigh of relief, just sit back and see me flying….

Thanks Maa! Trust me, you have done a good job

Kudos to you,

Love You,

Your baby J
