IT TAKES A MOTHER

It takes a mother
To walk through fire and further
To bless
To caress
To dress
Even through a massive mess

II
It takes a mother
To look,
Be caught like a fish on hook
And book happiness even through a non-breather

III
It takes a mother
To laugh through a bother
Cry through an eye and be watchful and protective through the other

IV
It takes a mother
To all a strength needed muster
Replacing vulnerabilities
…with impressive abilities
Making sure love gobbles fears
Hope slays tears
Care triumphs over jeers

V
It takes a mother
To all a tenderness gather
It takes a mother
To all a soldier problems conquer
It takes a mother
To burst all a painful blister
It surely takes a mother
To do all deemed undoable by many a mister
It surely takes a mother –
A real Mother
Yes, a real unbeatable MOTHER

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
