Mothers

You just need a hand to stroke your head
You only need a tender voice that tolerates your soul

You need a hug to say, “you’re swell.”

You need a mother who loves you and tucks you in bed 
Yearning at the moonlight and begging for relief 

Pleading with the stars for a reason from your grief 

Feeling beyond what this fleshly body that captures 

Desiring freedom from the entrapment of the gravity 
You want to fly beyond the wildest imagination 

And why are you held below the lowest atmosphere 

When you are meant for flight to hither tither and yon

Chained from rapture and left to learn, how to live and survive 
Breathe in and out controlling your soulish wanting 

Finding later, than sooner it comes by thankfulness 

The doors open when forgiveness begins blooming 

Rays of sunlight illuminate all the wanting to escape 
Thus peaceful energy arrives when you discover that your human
