Another Mother

By: Indie Skreet

Page 1, Self-explanatory


No desire for her to call

Or show belated care

Or to proclaim she’d been a fool

For never being there


Yet, I too bore the precious shoots

That grew from passion lit

And felt maternal love acute

That no time could omit


Unpalatable questions

Arose from all I had

Inadequate suggestions

Impaired my view a tad


Aware of need to nurture

My own elective offspring

However hard I searched her

All I saw in her was nothing


Though years of snow did linger

The imprint would remain

And clean rain failed to hinder

That wretched muddy stain


Recurrently dreamt mother

Would one day pen a line

Plead sorrow for the other

Who wasn’t really mine
