One day, I was just wondering by myself
When I came by a diary in the bookshelf
It was my mom’s, to my pleasant surprise
“I better sneak in, it’ll have some advice”
As I let it open, what my eyes saw
Every word struck fairly with awe
I never knew she had hopes so high
Passion I witnessed, I let out a sigh
Just like her daughter, she once had dreams
about her life. But now it just screams !
She too had goals that needed fulfilling
Career’s passion overhead, was drilling
But all came to an end, when she got married
And no one ever knew, what burden she carried
She killed it all, for the sake of her selfish kids
Why did I never witness the tears on her eyelids?
Now when I think of it, a feeling paces
We are totally alike, just different faces
With expectations high, I picture life
Sooner all will end, as I become a wife
And someday will come, I’ll have children
who I’ll never think of as any burden
And all that I’ll know, will be to worry
And lose all my life in such a hurry .
Oh my mom ! Now I love you even more
I promise I say this from the deepest core
In your anxieties, I’ll not let you drown
Oh dear mother ! I’ll never let you down
And do you know? how does this life roll?
It is all of your good deeds that control;
What treatment you’ll get in coming days.
So find today useful in mending your ways.
