Poems

Lament of a Mother

People said that you were a bully,
But that I did not believe.

They said that you made girls cry,
I said that you wouldn’t dare. 

Teachers pointed out your faults,
I felt that they were at fault.

They said you didn’t try hard enough,
But I felt you were given more than enough. 

Friends said that you were selfish,
I felt that they were peevish.

Grandpa said that you were rude,
But I felt he was an old fool. 

People told me to correct you,
But I felt you were too good to be true.

You failed in all your exams,
I felt you were not given a chance. 

Alas! Now that you are in prison,
I feel I am the cause for the tension.

I rue the day I was blind,
To all the faults we could find. 

People say Love is Blind,
But I amend Mother’s Love Is Blind.
