I am a shrill mother, sometimes cruel mother
Thumping the bible of maternal knowledge;
If a mother were ever to eat her young
I can assure you it would be out of love
Digesting sorrow with the bone and sinew.
This piece received a DD on September 16, 2013. Thank you for all the support and favorites!

So very moving, sincere, and wholesome, yet very flinching and sorrowful all the same.
A very beautiful poem; five lines can say a lot. :nod:

I find short poems can have the most impact.
Thank you for your kind words. :heart:

So very true about shorter poems having more of an impact. :nod:

No problem at all, for the pleasure was all mine.

This reminds me of my mother, who suffers from a personality disorder she will not get help for.
