privileges, she got none

deprived of life

scarcity, her only bid

her face not flawless

the scent of her body

disturbing, unpleasant

in the name of luxury to her child

she only has her lap to offer

in the name of cuisines

she got bread tasteless

she is his only comfort car

in her arms

she takes him to places

every night

as she watches him sleeping

she asks herself

for her offerings meagre

the fact that she is poor

is she a mother any less

  1. Wow! This is very powerful. And the picture, it’s such a daily scene for me. I think a mother is never any lesser even if she is poor, for it’s her love that makes her so perfect.
