Mothers & Children

Updated: Jun 3



I have grown under the shadows of my mother.

Her sorrows, her grief and occasional laughter,

The mosaic of my childhood.


I learnt to blow

When her sails fluttered,

Swinging madly with the winds of change.


I fought to make her smile,

Buried under the burdens of

What I could not say.


I became her worthy soldier

When her tongue was silenced

Though it longed to profess.


Somewhere along the way,

I paused to question,

Who am I?

Years pass in half-lived dreams

Built on half-baked plans,

Awaiting for life to unravel.


Surely there will be a day

When I am the queen

And someone else the pawn?


As I became a mother,

And became the keeper of their future,

The game of chess ceased to matter.


From bearing the crosses of the past

To holding the key to destinies,

I come to embrace me.


Adept at changing masks

While I remain faceless

My soul my only visage.
