A Poem for Mothers
by Caleb Owusu
I’ve ran helter skelter
In the midst of childish and
youthful exhubearnce In Years.
Every time the sun scorched my forehead
there was a comforter who softened
and straightened my naughty ways..
When I made mistakes
there was a corrector who sat me down
just to brief me about the tricks of this life,
When I was In pain there was
a BIG heart that I always confided
In to dry up my tears,
When everything seemed to be so distorted,
there was this person that always
showed me the way to the promise land.
Like a coin,
you shaped and levelled
my edges printing your good ethics
of life In me just to make
me that extraordinary person..
Today I glitter!
Today many wish to have
me In their pocket
because I was formed and
Made by The Master class
of You a Mother!
An epitome of excellence
and the shield to which I
ran to whenever the world frowns at me..
Today as the World Celebrates Mothers,
I shout your Name Mother
for I’m proud to be from your
Today, I paint your good deeds
to the World because you’re the
Important engine that has kept me
running all these years..
I Love You Mother!
