A Sincere Letter



My Dearest Child
Finally you have taken the steps to talk to me
To address me as living limb
Finally you integrate me into a breathing soul
Showering me with questions
While you remained a long years of silence
Now you know of my existence and that I’m more than a beating heart
I lived all this years within you and all you did is looked down on me
Similarly like I have no existing place
Choosing to neglect my voice and ran deaf to my cries
Now, the hit of life strike bad and hard
The pain bangs on your door
Without me your just corpse, a soul without a home
Luckily it was not too late, running back to your roots
The roots are the place where you belong
The base of your existence despite its imperfection
It embraces you back without hitting a spear of blame
And I’m nothing but a compassionate heart
I remain always sincerely yours

Your beloved heart

It's true, there are people who are ashamed of their roots and talk descendingly about where they come from. Your poem speaks of compassion indeed, and despite it all a person belongs where he belongs no matter what he has said of it.

It astonishes me how sons and daughters neglect and deny their parents (roots) and even feel ashamed of them! But it also amazes me how compassionate and forgiven the heart of a parent is.
Well put!

This is absolutly gorgeous, as a mother it defines so much about the hopes and fears of bringing up and finding peace in the relationships with children. I'm so pleased you found my blog
