A mother’s love

Written by: Tumelo Mogotsi

The screams and 
ranting
The shouting and 
banging
countinue 
through the night
They tell the 
tale of a plight
of a mother 
trying to intill
Dignity in her 
child and still
show l.o.v.e

As various 
thoughts rage 
her brain
Juggle and 
mix,the main one 
is her child 
alone
on the street 
gnawing at a bone
And being wrong

she tries her 
best
To withstand the 
test of this 
worlds parent 
but it becoming 
apparent
its defeating her
