Ɔbaatan Pa

(Caring Mother)


The nectar hosted butterfly

whispers to my ears through the skies

It testifies to me, your caring heart

and the parenting tags

you've got_


When the dog has left its owner

You evoke sympathy with consciousness

And dare carry her

into your bosom


Children breath softly

When your shadow is cast on them

they swim in the breeze of future

When they feel your presence


You eat not a full bowl

But think of a whole

You ginger the weak

To become strong and bold


When Paapa is absent in the house

You truncate the rippling flow

Of tears in the ducts

of these little ones

Take the crown

'ɔbaatan pa'
