Mother I

I am a mother and

I am

Not

I carried the seed

But broke the pod

Conceived from a tear in the face of god

Flushed out to sea in a crimson flood

I was anxious about you but now

I am

Not

One thought on “Mother I

  1. I had no problem with it. But then, I have never had any maternal feelings. Something to do with the way my mother regarded me, I suppose.
