“Hide No More, Mom”
By: D.M. Amorin
mom loves me,
works hard for me,
away always she went to work abroad,
hurts to see her ride away and disappear on the road.
I love my mom, she loves me so much too.
money is hard here in our country, yes it’s true.
never forgets my birthday and she never forget her gifts.
my appreciation and love for her, I am studying well and get high rates.
I like the most about her is that, she’s afraid but not.
wanted to give up, but not.
is strong and capable of everything.
not showing any weakness or anything.
My mom lied.
pretends to be happy, even though she was crying every night.
lied about being okay, when she had trouble working herself too much.
pretends to enjoy, but the truth is she wants to come back home.
lied about being energetic and full of life, she’s weak and not so strong as
she seemed to be.
I love my mom, I like it when I know she’s vulnerable.
gives me chance to be her child for her.
don’t need a strong mother that seemed indestructible,
then will a child be able to open things up to her?
yourself no more mom,
your child, you can’t lie to me.
alright, nothing to ashamed,
this world we are one… you and me.
