Thank you for mothering me Mother

Written by: Chuma Okonkwo

The magnitude of her love for me is magnificent
She loves me unconditionally with no reservations
She keeps our secrets like a covenant between God and Israelites
When I'm in a black hole
She comes like shepherd satellite
When I'm in a Black Hole of Calcutta
She comes like deux ex machina
To revivify my wheezy soul
She is my black gold
She is my life's 'wishbone'
She's my teacher extraordinaire
She's left, with an invisible ink
An inexpungible lofty message in my heart
Thank you for mothering me Mother!
