Mother looks exhausted …..And she works Nowhere, some say Neither at any Administrative workplace Nor any I/NGOs No job; nothing, she does. Yet, she wakes up Always early in the morning Along with cock’s doodle -doo And, the whole day and late night And in sun, in rain, She accomplishes Something; Called, household chores Cause, She, a Mother, Who beholds a golden Future for her offspring She has no such thing As OFFICE TIME And, A Housewife, An identity all provide And exhausted, She always looks Multiple times than any Office goer As her eyes awake like Owl over the night And hands unrest like A machine Cause, A golden future As she beholds For her offspring. Be conscious and Considerate And read and interpret Your mother’s eyes, You see Tears rolling down Yet, smile on face And exhausted Yet, loaded with affection As your achievement is Her satisfaction So, she cares Upbringing you The best way Because, as a golden future she Beholds For her offspring Though her work is not recorded In any administrative office Yet she is uncelebrated, Unsung hero Behind her offspring, As a golden future always she Beholds For her offspring.
