When then shall I hear?
Then when will you marry daughter dear?
When then some weight I must lose.
Then when is the latest date you can choose?

And the noon becomes dull
When the moon goes too soon
As daylight fades on the horizon
Be rest assured, I will always love you

Or feel like not loving me anymore

Poem by Koffi Mtonga

The Slow Death Of The Other's Mother
The mother that didn't have to be will be
Celebrated for what comes to her naturally

While others are incapable of loving what is not theirs
She adds that weight onto the cross that she bears

Her love is like water, I have drank...Read More

Premium Member How Does it Feel to Have Children
How does it feel to have children?
It feels insanely crazy sometimes, but it also feels blissful.
For five years you do not get to go to the bathroom by yourself.
Because a child is poking fingers under the door and sobbing,
wanting desperately...Read More

You brushed pass me for I felt your familiarity
I sense you watching over me, peeping through my tears. 
And you still stand victorious when I win.

My Mother Tells Me
My mother tells me,
If timely treasures are taken away,
don't forget to watch and pray.
If green grasses are turning to hay,
don't forget to watch and pray.

My mother tells me,
If fresh flowers start fading away,
don't forget to watch and pray.
If crimson clouds...Read More

The first to arrive, the first to offer help, the first to say “I’m sorry.”
She is a tiny woman, half my weight, but mighty in the power department.
She is my mother, farm-born, one of ten children. Seven survived.
Born twenty years...Read More

Mother's Smile

There never was a fonder smile

Running up the stairs giggling and clomping
Laughing way too loudly, alerting Mom that we are on our way.

Don’t spill the toast! It is cold by now but slathered in jelly.

The goddess in each
Where her heels lift,
with the ground kiss,
there bloom wild daisies.

When her lips open,
birds ruffle bloatin'
and prepare to chorus.

What crossed her touch
left the larva to wings
and discovered its reach.

She carries a wand,
blossoms to give life,
to song birds and men.

Women are left...Read More

She's the woman I saw
when I was alone

irritated my foes who hissed

Sweet roses bloom on Mother’s day
I’ll cut a bouquet for my mum’s room
She breathes their scent, I hear her say
‘I just adore their sweet perfume,
such vibrant colours lift the gloom’

And all of a sudden my little world plunged into darkness.
The darkest one yet. For me.
I felt like a forsaken feather, of no meaning to any world but my own.
Pierced, drilled, struck hard.

Terrible torments bothering me from the...Read More

My children, ponder this.
Something has gone amiss.
I bore and nurtured you,
which I was proud to do.
And in your infant days
I taught you caring ways
of nature and respect
and all of life protect.

You played in pastures green,
in woods and in the stream.

From fresh flowers, we are garlands with heaven-scent
Adorning royal dignitaries, influentially iridescent.
Our great task is to be garlands of honour this Mother’s Day 
Beautifying women excelling in their God-granted roles, no one can’t pay.

Mothers and Daughters

Life forces us to grow up
Hardship makes us want more
Hard communication toughens souls
Mistakes are made no matter what

Mothers Love fondly
Daughters Love fonder
Both eyes at one time wondered
Anger sometimes hungered...

Mother's Love made those pains heal
