Away From My Mother
My horizon is lightened,
My life is Brightened with you, mother.
When I was too shy to ask, and stole your money.
You still offer me advises, and asked me not to worry.
You pet me as I fold my tiny self like a guilty pussy,
You pat my soft body.
With my colorful adored attire,
You place on my waistline a dozen of colorful beads.
The beads you made for me with so much love.
A chain of your love and adoration towards me,
A crown, I'll always wear.
I walk proudly among my mates, showing off my slim waistline and sets of crystal beads.
You train my body and soul,
To that of our religion.
Yet, my heart concurs,
With the demands of religion.
You know that I am excessively sentimental.
I told you about my new love.
I probably left you astonished,
By my disclosures.
What is this madness, heartlessness, weakness or should I say… Irresistible love?
What inner confusion made me tell you about my biggest sin,
I wanted to hide from you.
You kissed my forehead and advised me to overcome my silent bitterness.
You accepted my new relationship while I can still hear the rumors in town against me and him.
They say school turned me into a prostitute,
A devil who lure men of wisdom and wealth from the righteous path.
But to me,
Marriage is a personal thing of joy,
Just like family.
I reported to anyone who cared to listen.
I don't know why,
I feel bad, I feel guilty.
I feel I'm cheating on your love, mother.
I feel I'm cheating on your love,
I dared committed such an act of disapproval adultery.
Forgive me mother,
For only you can instinctively feel where my happiness lies.
Even though others labelled me she-devil,
Many wanted to possession me.
Yet, you were there for me.
You'll always be my first love and mother,
And he'll be my lover and partner.
You're love will always win over he's,
Even though I'm away from you,
