A Moment of Realization

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.
