Agony of a Mother

Agony of a Mother

I came from third world country who tried her luck in America. I’m a single mother with four kids to support and to prepare for their future. After my marriage collapse, I decided to go to United States for their future. I’ve been here for ten years without going home. Thanks to internet that keep binding us thru chatting with webcam and microphone. But this is not enough, my children grew-up without me on their side. I tried to compensate my absence thru money and packages. Now I feel emptiness in my heart … Here is a poem that expresses my sentiment …

AGONY OF A MOTHER

My children are my inspiration

They are my life and happiness

Without them I won’t survive

The hardship I encountered in life.

All I have in mind is their future

I work hard to fulfill this dream

I want to see them in their career

Successful and gainful.

As time pass by I’m searching

Looking for something I’m missing

I feel emptiness and I’m longing

To my children who are caring.

Now slowly it clears my mind

Giving comfort in life is not enough

What is important is the love 

To be developed in their heart.

I’m thinking if it is my fault

I was force by the circumstances 

To leave them and make a living

In order to pursue their dream.

Mother is selfless as they said

Her love to her children is endless

And I tried to be the best

You’ll be the judge on my request.
