Ingratitude

Ingratitude short poem

Photo by VinothChandar

He came along into her life,
Like a sunshine after a horrible night.
The bliss that followed him,
Buried the pain and let it dim.
She held him close to her bosom,
for the happiness that formed a chasm
He cried and she smiled
Planting a kiss on a cheek of her child.
She wished from god that the pink
under his skin stayed,
After all the throe she had paid.
Who knew the gratitude would vent,
Until after a jubilee as she beheld,
On the box of joy ,the same child
Flourish as heaven in the robes of gold
A lone tear escaped her eye so old
Filled with pride and a tinge of shame.
Before her poor stomach could rumble,
There came a haughty grumble.
A vessel knocked her head
Not as hard as the words,
“Be quick or you won’t get a bread!”
