I was a just-born and she was Twenty-Five,
Though we were we, we were one.
I would cry out in Latin and she would respond in Greek,
I would learn nothing but she never got tired to teach.
I was surrounded by monsters eager to pull my cheek,
but they would vanish the moment i was wet and weep.
She would come running and hold me in her arms,
as if i had won the contest of the charms.
Now I was able to walk and chew,
hey, i was two.
I and she could now understand each other,
i was her everything and she needed no other.
I would try to walk and fall down,
But knowing she was with me, the fear of getting hurt was now gone.
We still could not converse that effectively,
But she would understand my needs so easily.
I could now roam about free,
because now i have turned three.
I was ready to join a new world,
my academic life was now goanna mould.
She would dress me as best as a prince,
but when i would come back, she would need at least an hour to rinse.
I was now able to talk,
I was a ferry and she was my dock.
I still remember the child, whose shirt I had tore,
Hey buddy, i have turned four.
I now came home a little late,
Nevertheless finding her waiting at the gate.
She would hug me and carry me in her arms,
it felt like flying through the farms.
We now did the homework together,
i would spoil the home and she used to work.
Years passed and now i was fifteen, and with each year i would forget to
I wouldn't care for what she said, because now i had become mean.
She would ask me to study for a good future,
but i was busy in a different culture.
Now i had many shes in my life,
i dreamed of having one of them as my wife.
I changed a lot which she did not teach,
She would try to hug me but i was out of reach.
She still waited for me at the gate,
but i would look at her with utmost hate.
She would be awake till late in the night,
because i wasn't home, i was in a fight.
She had so much to scold, but she never did say,
hoping to find me better the next day.
Time went on and now i am grown,
lost in the world of my own.
I and she, between us have a river,
I have left her for my career.
When i was young, for me, she sacrificed her ambitions,
but i don't care, i now have my own mission.
I am not with her now, i am in a different city,
she is so old now but i don't even pity.
She needs me now but i am nowhere to find,
in the race for appraisal, i have become blind.
In a few years from now, i will be two,
there will be in my life someone new.
Then i'll forget even to bother,
i am her son and she is my Mother.
"It is not how much you do.....
how much love you put in the doing"
But y she loves this much even she knows we dont ...
we do have our own principles and my principle is exaclty opposite
to the above (considering her)....
there is one saying that says 'if u try to hold the sand as tight as possible
the sand particles will fall sooner from ur hand'
and she is exactly doing the same thing(she loves more than required
and she will loose).
also, there is another saysing that 'never go against ur conscience'
if u want to satisfy her go against ur conscience and ruin(sacrifice) your life (or)
satisfy yourself have a better life and hurt (sacrifice)her feelings.
which one do you suggest me to choose.
and these are my two eyes but the differece is one lives loger time than
the other so which one do i need to keep, the short life or the long life.
If you ask me, i will opt for the one life which actually gave me the life...
Then what is the purpose of your birth,
just coming and going back without doing anything...
Guatum looks you have answered with centimental feelings
but if you see the fact...
No parent in this world would like to see their children to fail in their life
and every parent expect their children to be noble in this society...
and to survive in life you have to fight...
and 'to gain something you have to loose something' ,
presently we are loosing her feelings, no other choice(as i know).
May be this poem is more to heart and need to think from there not from brain.
If we think we can sacrifice her after got support from many years, then imagine the same think if she would had come 20yrs back then wat's our situation. we would be ending with boarding schools with an excellent career but no one would be around to share with us.
offcourse this is again not from brain becoz we don't do business to see how much gain/loss in few keys things life..
