Today is Mother’s Day

(A Poem)

by Obinna Chilekezi

Words are enough to say all to say

About the woman that I passed through

The narrow route of her hills of hip

That august dark morning, and since

 

That day she has been there for me

Right from the early morning of waiting

At Nnaayi Kiaza’s class down to the

Rough college road, and since then –

 

She has been there, whether at

Crises, cries, joy and jubilation.

Watching

Talking and shouting down the time

I chose the rough road of marriage

And she’s there

 

So each a time I sit by herside

Confused to say how grateful I should

For her for tough stance that I

Not follow the street-filled crowd

Of growing era – like boys of me time…

 

What can I say to this woman than this:

For God to shower her

With blessings night and day
