Ideal mom – K.B

Next, please…  

 

Ideal mom

 

There was a time,
Before age
Took them away,
When they used
To be beautiful,
United, serene.

There was a time
When laughter
Would enter our
House,
When there was
Plenty of food
And guests,
Music,
And harmony.

I thought
That those
Things
Were anchored
In eternity ….

I thought
That it would
Never fade
Away…

Alas, things
Have taken
Another turn
Since the light
Rose…

They couldn’t
Keep eye to eye
With me

Evil rooted itself
Like venom

Horror became
Our daily share

War on eachother
Too

Because I was called
Elsewhere…

I didn’t have a word
In it

The good Lord decided
He said :  » Be » and it
Was.

There was a time
When the hands
Were warm to cook,

When we would sit
Together in the living
Room ;

Now, there are bigger
Threats and much more
At stake;

I’m tired of going their
Way;

What rotten ideology
Is at the core that makes
It impossible to befriend
Them ?

Even the Prophet said :
 » When your children
Are of age, befriend them ».

There was a time
When there were
No claws.

Not enough !

Not enough
Faith
To follow
The path
Of Life !
