|Best Poems About / On MOTHER
twin sister of the sun
Cousin of the azure blue skies
Black pearl of the atlantic sea
Your charm and beauty enchant
millions from far away lands.
filthy shameless whore
Whose large bossom ocean vessels
and suckle day and night
Mother of market women
Drunk always with pursuit of profit
Reeking always of squalor
Strong loving mother
toiling and hustling daily
In the face of merciless suns
And in the chill of murderous nights
To feed your bastard children
Mother of a household of commotion
Mother of a thousand shanty households
Mother of a million starving children
Lagos you are my sweet mother.
Ever happy mother
what sin have you committed
to make your children treat
you so callously?
Burdened by their incessant needs
you no longer walk with dignified shoulders
Your graceful and elegant poise
now replaced with the faltering
uncoordinated dance of a raving lunatic.
Lagos my sweet kind mother,
see how miserable you have become
carrying the bitter burden of
caring for your countless
see how like a hunchback you
bear the brunt of catering for them
like a drunken masquerade under
the yoke of their daily demands
Tell me, mother would these
rascal children of yours
who gather daily in large
numbers to feast at your table.
These callous children who steal
food out of your mouth and fight
over your property
would they still gather
around you when you
no longer have any food to give them?
Dear mother, remember it was you who
lured us all away from our
fathers' fields and farmlands
into your atlantic palour
Remember, mother that it was you who
plucked all of us from the sweet suckle
of our mothers' breasts to live in your house
Remember oh lagos how you enticed us all
with promises of wealth and fine wine
Remember your promise of the good life
And now you forsake us all!
Oh how we starve at
your table, mother!

I know everybody likes to think they have the best mother,
but they're wrong
the best mother in the world is my mum,
I swear to you my mother is the best mother,
but why should you take my word for it, ask my sister or my brother,
When I was young and I was feeling helpless because I was sick,
She would come to the rescue with some soup and rub on some vicks,
I swear By Allah I love my Mother,
Shes the only one who would stick by me and never surrender,
When people said I couldn't, she said I could,
and when I got hurt, she would cry so much my living room would flood,
Masha'Allah I have the best mother,
And as long as I'm breathing I want to do everything in my power,
to make sure she never suffers,
because she did everything she could to see me smile and prosper,
even when she had a bloody hard day at work,
she would come in, smile and say 'What would you like to eat love? '
I love my mother, I never want to see another tear fall from her eyes,
And they say at her feet lies paradise,
so with my foolish ways, I'm sorry if I ever hurt her,
and I want to see her smile forever,
I can be annoying but I can never bug her,
that's why next time I see her I'm going to squeeze and hug her,
I love all mothers,
because like my mother is a mother to you,
your mother is a mother to me,
so this is the moral of the story,
I love my mother,
she is incomparable to anybody.

Thank You Mama (Mother's Day)
A mother's blessings is incomparable
To all other human beings.
Although, a baby can not be made
with out a daddy
But, mothers is laying on death bed
While having the baby inside her
giving the child a chance to live.
With all those nine months inside her womb
She and the baby fights alone.
Maybe daddy is there to give support and attention
But, how about those daddy who worked away from home?
Mothers are gift from heaven
So delicate and soft but
inside they are the toughest
and bravest of all human beings.
Their sacrifices did not end of giving birth
Instead, its the only flowing divine grace
that a child received from the moment she/he was conceived.
Mothers are always there in times of troubles and fears.
Fathers give love and affection too
But, mothers are more sensitive for babies needs.
A mother and a child connection can not be fathom
For it is from divine grace that even animals have it.
On mother's day celebration
Raise your arms into the sky and shared your love
To every mothers in the world who gives sacrifice.
And even to those unhappy, unwanted ones
Still be thankful that a mother gives you a chance
To see the world and breath the air of life.
Children, we can not repay what our mothers sacrifices.
The moment she conceive us and let us live in her womb
She already died half and face the world of death.
That alone is the sweetest gift we are given as our
hearts beat into life inside her womb.
Mothers are the most loving, caring, sweetest creature.
They don't needs expensives gifts to show love in return.
A simple hugs, or a kiss on the cheek and a soft
'Thank You' Mom followed by a simple 'I love You' Mom
I'm sure you will receive the sweetest smile on earth.
And thats Mothers love for her kids.
My Mother inspired me to write this.

Having three eyes, Mother Chandraghanta!

Holding eight hands, Mother Kushmaanda!

to survive and for the comfortable live.
Mother Skand Mata! The Goddess of fire!

Mother Kaatyayini! Riding on lion
You persistently battle against the evil;
continue to slay bad and deceitful entities.
Hey Maa Kaalratri! Shubhamkari
Destroyer of the darkness and fear
dont let the evils grow and keep us fearless.
Riding on bull, Mother Maha Gauri!

and radiate the peace in the universe.

Youre invincible power, giver of boons to Gods;
keep us blessed and fulfil our wishes.
