Thoughts of a tired Mother
Taken from an African experience
I am a Mother, counselor and Spoken word Poetry blogger. Good sense of humor, and i love to read and listen to soul music. I love to write about people's experiences and the things that they deal with hoping that my Poetry heals them and lets them know that they are not alone.
Inspiring People with Poetry.
riots inside a dress' are a part
of what make women
of color so uniquely
Loved this poem
& the message implied
all up & thru it!
I great poem, heartfelt and sincere. I love the broken rhythm as it makes each line land on new idea without feeling forced. That gives them poem a kind of "walking" feeling; slowly moving from one obstacle to another.
I do a lot of writing on immigration in my job as a writer, but also in my own poetry, too. The need and desire not just for "tolerance", but also for feeling "welcome" is so important. We need to do more in society to welcome people like refugees, for example.
I am in the UK, and I am embarrassed by the way my own country is behaving at the moment. I love the final stanza — the message of irony. And immigrant standing at the foot of the symbol of liberty and freedom (which was a gift from France) is especially poignant.
