But where is Ma?


I am looking very nice you know
In my new dress.
As pretty as a rose,
Ma told me so.
She thought one on my hair
Would make me look like a princess.
I cant see her now you know.
STRANGE......
She is very pretty too actually,
My Ma.
Pa really loves her a lot.
He loves me too,
Says I make him smile.
But he has tears now.
He's looking stupid actually.
STRANGE...
He was to take me and Ma to the park
But where is Ma?
I have to see her rose still.
Some funny looking man is trying to talk to me.
Why doesnt he understand?
I wanted the rose ma was getting me.
She had one too.
A white rose.
I like white roses
But ma couldnt reach the other one you know.
She needed help to get it
So I did that, I helped her.
The rose was pretty.
I have my white rose with me finally now.
But pa isnt happy.
STRANGE...

Awesome initial emotional movements, but i felt something was missing especially the end could have been more expressive. The message was clear but at the end u missed out on depth it required.

Through the eyes of a child, a girl actually. So emotional yet sincere. Very powerful!

Foxy said...

I feel like I get it...and if I do...it makes me sad...and that is the point of poetry to convey emotion isnt it?...lovely writing Aashi!

Sad, and with a question at the end that maybe the reader doesn't want to think about the answer. Sad, and lovely.
