The Mother

Posted: May 16, 2019

Mother —

kissed my sleeping forehead

at six in the morning

returned to me with smiles

at six again.

Mother —

paid the bills

fought corrupted officers

walked the crowded lanes

with bureaucratic files.

Mother —

pursued her dreams

expressed her opinions

lived a life every mother

deserves.
