Forgotten by pharp
Etheree Poetry contest entry

has forgotten
A mother who loved
sacrificed, gave her all
Instilled . . . family values
Now, her memories are all gone
of her children who show no concern.
God's way of keeping her from dejection

Sometimes, I think it best my mother can no longer remember much or even any of her children. If she did, she would surely be disappointed. When I look into her eyes, I often wonder just what it is she is thinking. I have five siblings left and it is a shame of the little or no concern some show for a loving mother who gave her all that we could survive. I remember the many times when we didn't have much to eat, mom would go hungry so that we would not. I should not be surprised; when I was going up, three of my siblings made my life unbearable.
