A Poem for Mothers’ Day

Speak not

Of “the other gender”

For othering stinks of chauvinism

Tell me not

About “the weaker sex”

For what “weaker sex”

Could be a mother?

Where would the world be

If it were not for mothers?

“Mother” isn’t a mere title

It is strength

It is tenacity

It is multitasking

It is the sustenance of a generation

And the continuation of humanity

The bridge between life before it begins

And life once it begins


To all mothers,

All would be mothers,

And all the mothers in waiting

The world tips off the hat today

Happy mothers’ day!
