My Mum

December 18, 2020


Kazeem Taiwo


If I were to talk about my mom,

I’d sing of the tenacity imbued with hope

In the face of torment;

I’d speak of tears from countless

adversities and, the painful reminiscence

of the past that still seemed to steal into the present.

I’d write about the consequential crippling fear of fate,

Resulting into endless sleepless nights of disquiet;

I’d speak of the anger that came with

desperation and helplessness,

And the anger and guilt we couldn’t help but take because of the various sacrifices

I’d write all of these and more to describe the hero that’s my mum.
