Mother Understands

Mother Understands short poem

Photo by goforchris

As a child you are a free bird
Playing hide and seek, here and there
Controlling a crumbling child is truly hard
So your mother cooks up threats of invisible monster

Your twinkling eyes may be fearless
Designed devil may drive your distress, high
Smile sprouting from your rosy lips may become baseless
But your mother breaths with a sigh

Your wrist may be tender
In a crowd, she may drag you like a handcuffed criminal
You may feel, as if things are out of order
But mother ensures your safety as cardinal

Your skin may be beautiful and fair
You may like to play in the open sun
To let you out, your mother may scare
Fearing your skin may get tan

Reading aloud restrictions, may get you to burst
She focus to shape your life, decent
She knows what may happen in the worst
As every child is naturally innocent

Only out of her own anxiety
She may at times harshly talk
She does many things to fit you into the society
As raising a child is never a cake walk

Each action helps your personality to build
Parenting is an onerous task
Every endeavor is to turn you as an effective child
You shall admit later, if one were to ask

She cautiously weighs each choice of your freedom
With a reasonable rating of good and bad
She chooses to tap her own childhood wisdom
As responsibility of raising you, drives her hard

She sets the path to learn
When you win or loose, mother understands
Whenever required, she tends to horn
Learn to lead life, as your mother commands!
