Lonely Girl, with obsession of mom’s astounding illness

Astounding illness versus

this tender little girl.

She needs tender loving care, from the mother.

But unfortunately, her mom is incapacitated by illness.

incapacitation makes her spend her days in bed

At her age, this girl needs security and stability to be playful and carefree Free from every care in the world, but she is care-full.


She lives with her mom, who is ill.
Mom is laying down indoors.
The daughter gets outdoors to play
to enjoy her childhood. That’s what children do right?

Yet, her childhood is overshadowed by care, concern, anxiety, and worry.
She is thinking whilst she is playing the mom might pass on any time


She stealthily walks to the window and peeps.
Peeps through the window, as a way of checking on mom.
Mom should get alright
for herself, and her little girl.
Her little girl, that loves her so much.
And now feels insecure since mom might be no more anytime

’cause this astounding illness is gaining ground by the day


Astounded illness and the routine

Such is her daily routine
Her mom is everything to her.
To her, everything mom has ever done,
is sacrificial, satisfactory, and sweet.


She walks to school, in deep thought
Is this the last time, she has laid her eyes on mom.
All this she ponders in her heart. ’cause she doesn’t even know how to explain herself
‘Nobody will understand’, she thinks to herself.

Every day is like a mirage

The world is not that clear


Wouldn’t it be considerate, if some considerate person would care?
If they would care, care enough, to attend to the girl’s emotions.

at least have a bit of insight into what’s going on Puberty years struggles that were torturous, lonesome and confusing

…..And ask her how she feels

….But then in her culture, issues like this are like a taboo to  talk about

…..Nobody wants to talk about what could happen, especially issues that pertain to death.

such is their culture

for death is so venerated

they never want to talk about what may happen

or could be

to them not talking about it

is like the issue will disappear

They say a problem shared is half solved.
Surely this girl needs someone to hear her out.

About the mom’s astounding illness.
