Forgotten Mother

Dedicate to forgotten mothers

As her legs give birth,
Kissing life,
Painted with perfection,
Of an innocence soul:
Scent from his absence
Gives new meaning of betrayal,
As each particles of cells scream:
“Help me God!”
She felt the fire, the bliss of pain
Rushing through her vein:
Her womb trembles
And for a moment
Sorrows smothered,
While delight ignites, sparks love within:
In the pureness of an infant eye
Hope reminds her of love between
She and him
As she smiles for a second
Cradling hope, her surroundings
Remind her like the many, un-kept women,
That she is a forgotten mother.
