Mother's Voice

Hush, my dear mother, say no more (Shut up your criticizing, out the door) I know you love me, want my best, (You’re putting my temper to an acid test) I’m trying Jenny Craig, I know I’ll win (Your suggestions are tantamount to starvation sin!) Hush, my dear mother, say no more.

You are still her little girl and always will be. Mothers can be nicely....over protective. Am sure she cares so much for you but i can understand your frustration. Well constructed poem.

Very riveting and forthright poem, Sunlite. The dynamic, dialogue interplay is creatively brilliant. I love the Jenny Craig call and response lines. Superb poetry, dear. Star bright write. Instant fave for sure. Love and hugs always.

Not too personal, Silent One. But very common to mothers and daughters.

Yes, mothers do care a lot for their children, so much so they sometimes tend to get too involved with their lives and decision making! I'm sure she only has the child's best wishes at heart! I say this as I don't know if this poem is about you, and to say it is could be offensive, I'm not one to hurt people! I really enjoyed reading your very descriptive and back and forth thought process poem this afternoon! What a grandiose piece, Such Awesome Work!!

Hello Sunlite, It's Mr. "ME" here. (And thanks for your recent comment on my latest poem!!) I agree with Eileen, relationships between Mother and Daughter can be complicated at times. I do sympathize for sure. Best of Luck!! Cheers and Best, Gary

Yes, they can be complicated, but after a while, they get sweet.

Thank you, Eve. Just "light" emotional pain.

Wow! This is so deep, Sunlite. The reality is often very different than what it appears to be. The way you wrote this is superb. Mother/daughter relationships are complicated at times.
