There are some times in life when we find ourselves rather helpless. We want the best for those we love, yet destiny has a different story laid out for us. I stand at cross roads having to decide such critical decisions. I am not certain what the reperussions would be on my boys.
In my confusion and despair, I felt inspired to pen my thoughts, before I knew it, it took shape of a poem. Its nearly after 20 years that I felt the pain to write a poem today. pain, coz I am one of those people who are inspire to write when hurt and create when happy. Actually its less a poem but my wish, my hope, my prayer for my boys. A mother is the backbone of a family and she constantly has to remain strong. Sometimes I find myself drifting from my hopes and it scares me.
This poem is for my sons who are bonded for better or worse times, but struggle every single day to fight in this very perfect world.
They are all dyslexic.
My darling Son,
You are unique,
You are special,
You are capable of everything under the sun.
In everything you see, feel and show
You are clear yet unsure
My precious one, you will always have me beside you,
We will be brave and fight it thru
Darling son, don’t ever let them change you
For your disability is not a failure in you,
I know, struggle will always be your best friend
But better that, than silly boys to tend
Sensitive as you are
Mocked as you are
Believe in yourself, believe in me
At your feet, this world will be
Let your imagination soar
Let your creativity find its core
Your world is so much more beautiful
While ours full of mean and ridicule
You have to climb these biased mountains
No one else but you should be certain
You are special
You are gifted
You are God’s own chosen one
Use it to bring comfort to others
Use to show kindness to other brothers
I feel miserable when I see you lonely in your class
Then I feel perhaps its coz you are a class apart !
Don’t join the flock to be one of them
Make instead your own path
Believe that you have been sent down to fulfill a purpose
Be happy, be grateful, we have one another
It may seem difficult today but the road does go further
I am with you today in body
Tomorrow in spirit and perhaps
Another day only but in your prayers
Whenever where ever you are,
Remember God’s chosen one, you are
