NaPoWriMo 16 Touch Of A Mother


NaPoWriMo 16

Touch of a mother

A saying goes that
if a mother steps inadvertently
on her child’s foot,
the child will not be hurt
for a woman moves
armed with an awareness
of life around her
her instincts insistent
that none be hurt
because a child, any child
is precious to a woman somewhere
-a mother like her

but a mother’s touch
when it is designed to hurt
rips through skin and soul
and leaves one
irrepairably shattered
and powerless
to grow past the suppurating tear
