He saves up just enough, to buy himself a new pair of clothes for work – not a penny more, not a penny less,
When, his daughter comes up to him, invites him to her graduation, and asks, for a new dress,
He, without thoughts, second; happily spends all he has, to buy her one, the very next morn,
And wears to work, with pride, his same old clothes – though jaded, and torn!
She lay immobile, for months, in pain,
The doctors tried everything they could, but in vain,
God stepped in to intervene,
Decided, it was time for the vagabond son to enter the scene,
She caught a tiny glimpse of his face – Lo and Behold! – she moved a muscle, with fain,
What medicines and mendicants couldn’t, mother’s love did it again!
A day wouldn’t do justice,
Because even an eternity wouldn’t suffice,
But a day all the same, an opportunity,
To thank, to realise, to appreciate,
That embodiment of selfless love, care and concern,
Ma, you’ve borne the pain for me, with me,
You are my rock of support,
You’re my pillar of strength,
You’re my best friend,
You fend off my every fiend,
You are who I belong to,
You are the reason I’m here,
What will the world be without you?
Happy mother’s day, ma! 💖✨
“Is she for real?
He takes her for granted, but she’s there for him no matter what,
He doesn’t have time for her, but she makes him her first priority, no matter when.”
“She’s his mother”
P.S. That’s my attempt at a tiny tale
“Erm…No, but I’m nervous. What if things turn haggard?”
“Chill. It’ll be a smooth sail.”
“I might fall. I might fail.
I wanna have a ball, but I know I am too frail”.
“You are meant to reach the stars.
Begin to look, beyond your scars.”
“You haven’t given up on me yet?”
“Never have. Never will. You’ll always have my back. For you, are my best bet.”
You ain’t meant to be, in a cage, confined,
You ain’t meant to be, by boundaries, defined,
With your attitude, slay, with your confidence, stun,
Brace yourself for everything under the sun,
Break all barriers, set your soul free,
Be as wild as you’d want to be,
Flap your wings for you are meant to fly,
And you wouldn’t know what you can do, until you try!
An idea, A thought,
A poem, A plot,
A picture, A painting,
A song you might want to sing,
Sober or slick,
Well thought out, or just candid and quick,
Create, something new,
Create, something out of the blue,
Create, something that stays to your heart true,
Create something, that speaks for you!
