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,
Your baby J
