Where Is Mama?

Write a letter to your mom. Tell her something you’ve always wanted to say, but haven’t been able to.

There was a time
Long time ago
When I hated
Your mighty job

Where is Mama?
She’s not home
Responsibility
Over bond

Will you be there
To see me win,
To cook me lunch,
And take me home?

Half the time
You’re not around
I hated your
Almighty job

Sorry, Mama
I was a kid
I didn’t know
How it is like

It’s fine, Mama
It made me strong
All brave and right
Just on my own

Mama, work hard
Leave me the key
Go do your best
I’ll lock the doors

I grew, Mama
I get it now
It’s not your fate
To stay at home

‘Coz Mama dearest
I can see
The same future
Held for me

Why should I be
Caged inside
When I could fight
For better cause

Spread your wings
Be free, Mama
Don’t you fly back
What’s done is done

Someday I will
Fly by your side
I promise, Ma
Things are alright
