devi me II my childhood

Written by: edem segbedzi

Crawling for many days 
my knees getting dark 
my hands losing its soft touch 
increasing anticipations on my mom's face 
still soiling my clean panties 
  
At last, my first step 
joy shooting across  mama's face 
uncontrollable tears tumbling down her cheeks 
me laughing,advertising my two milky teeth 
a moment of pure joy incomparable 
mama and i drowning in innermost love 

My second step,  
my legs wobbling mama stretching her arm 
yearning for a hug 
But no, my first heavy fall 
a tear trying to fall 
mama quickly compensates me 
not willing to destroy the moment 
compensating me with sweet breast milk
