Motherhood

“Each second makes its mark on every single person’s life- comes and then goes, quietly disappearing without fanfare, evaporating into the air like steam from a piping hot Christmas pudding. Enough time leaves us warm; when our time is gone, it leaves us cold. It is time of which we do not have enough; it is time that causes the war within our hearts, and so we must spend it wisely.” (The Gift, Cecilian Ahern)

Defending the poor and unfortunate

caring with a heart so compassionate

ah! a lawyer that’s what I will be

back then as a little girl with glee.

Broadcasting news on TV

doing it with a mind so steady

Ah! a television anchor I see

back in high school so carefree.

Pouring thoughts on paper

scribbling late at night so dear

ah! a journalist I will

back in college with free will.

Never become a lawyer really

it wasn’t my dream actually

‘Twas a childish thing to wish

no dirt to dish.

Broadcasting wasn’t even for me

‘though I had the chance to be

you see surgery on the neck

making it hard to speak.

A writer I may have always been

creating stories every now and then

putting actions into words

screaming as I scribble with thoughts.

You see there’s something I miss

never imagined I enjoyed it with bliss

caring for little souls as they grow

motherhood is what makes me glow.

Mother

Time has not robbed my feelings

toward my mother

she’s still the sweet darling,

and she’ll be forever mine.

Age may have changed her

face now furrow – laden,

the beauty is still there;

she is my ideal token.

 

P.S.

Happy mother’s day to my mother and to all the amazing moms around the world. Over the years, my daughters made/created the best and most creative mother’s day gift for me.

Monday Morning Melts 3

In response to Monday Morning Challenge hosted by Rosema of A Reading Writer and Jade M. Wong.

Monday, Nov. 21: In Your Hands- Jason Mraz
But when you’re alone
You’re living in a world with only choices
And what I choose is you

 

 

Sleeping beauty 

Slept peacefully

For a century, or so

She happily dreamt

But then one day

A kiss to her lips 

Made her wake up

And that’s when reality blew up

Now it’s the same

The spell has been lifted

Our years of imagining

Are finally over

I chose you.

 

 

Your Turn:

Share a poem, story, or photo inspired by this week’s song-lyrics-prompt. You can share something you created that was inspired directly by the lyrics or you can share other pieces that coincidentally fit the prompt (for ex: an old piece of yours, or one of a beloved blogger – with permission).
Linkback/create a pingback to this post. Here is a quick tutorial on how to do it.
Tag your post with MondayMorningMelts, so we and your co-bloggers will be able to read/see your take on the prompt. Here’s how you create tags.
Most important of all, read and comment on your blogger friends (old and new found, we’ll never know).😉
There are no word limits and no restrictions except to stay true to the theme. Creating a brand new post in response to the prompt is also optional.

The goal isn’t to create new content, but rather to share pieces that melt the heart, tickle the soul, and brighten up a typically gloomy Monday. That’s why if you already have a piece that fits this week’s lyrics, or if you have a fellow blogger whose piece you want to share (with their permission), you are more than welcome to do so!

FUTURE PROMPTS

It came to our attention (thank you Sarah!) that we should reveal the prompts for the upcoming month to give all of you who would like to participate in time to prepare your submissions. Here they are for the rest of November:

Monday, Nov. 21: In Your Hands- Jason Mraz
But when you’re alone
You’re living in a world with only choices

Monday, Nov. 28: As Long As You Love Me – Backstreet Boys
Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine
I’m leavin’ my life in your hands
People say I’m crazy and that I am blind
Risking it all in a glance
