Mom, Habibti

Mother, mother, mum, mama,

Who are you?

Are you just the giver of life?

Mom, madre, mami, mam, ma,

What would you do to protect your babe?

Legal or nefarious means?

Mother, oumi, mama, Haha, mà,

How do you love equally all your babe?

Do you prefer one over another? Why?

Mam, nanay, habibti, ema, mamma,

How do you empower all your babe?

Do you compare them and demean some?

Mami, mother, mom, love, Ema,

Love me for me! Never send me away or leave me!

Mum, mother, maman, madre, Ema,

Don’t break my heart to leave,

Don’t break my heart and hate me!

I'm a Canadian whose life has been interesting as I've lived in Developing countries and here. The contrast of law, order, and amenities available to us Canadians (which we take for granted, sometimes) to war torn civil wars is enormous. It leaves an influence upon the soul that cries out for justice. My poetry and writing reflect that and more.
