A Day In The Life Of A Working Mother [#Poetry]

Excellently articulated, this poem about a day in the life of a working mother proceeds at a staccato pace that captures very well the way her day might go.

Excellently articulated, this poem about a day in the life of a working mother proceeds at a staccato pace that captures very well the way her day might go. 

I woke up,
Rushed to kids’ door,
Checked on them,
Back to more.

Screened the house,
Locked the stores,
Picked them up,
Hustled two floors.

Gobbled some food,
Bid adieu,
Off to work,
Gulped a coffee or two.

Filled some forms,
Examined a few.
Wrapped up quick,
Off again I flew.

Danced the two,
As I glanced through the door.
Hugged and kissed
And cuddled and more.

Splashed my face,
Put them to play.
They Giggled and Jumped
And Laughed as I sway.

Held them and fed
A morsel or two.
Prepared the bath,
Struggled anew.

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

Exhausted and fallen,
Put them to bed .
Straightened the spine,
‘Knock-knock’ the door said.

He came, we sat.
A talk ensued.
Few jokes, some jabs
A point of view.

He answered, I asked
And we argued such,
He concluded
‘You Can’t Even Do This Much!’
