Corruption – A focused struggle against one’s kin

Description:
 
In the following poem, I blatantly criticize how corruption affects the country by comparing it to that of a mother – child relation. While on one end we have selfless love from the mother who takes care of her children, corruption affects the child, who no longer protects the mother from hardship. Moreover, the child himself goes ahead in inflicting damage to his own mother through his activities. The mother makes an emotional cry to her brave and just children to protect her against those  corrupt and hopes that her silent sobs are soothed by action by her other brave and just sons. 

In this poem, I speak about the distance increasing and affection reducing. That happens as both mother and child do not know what the other is doing because of the virtual gap created due to ignorance and lack of awareness.
 
Poem:
Sons and daughters! I hold you dear
You, my child, have made me fear.
I take care of you with pride aplomb
Watching and fussing you bomb and comb.
I work hard, day in and day out.
Watch, my friends! How independent and smart!
My child is the best – claims the mom,
My duty is fulfilled, i feel that come.
 
 
“Alas, my mom! I grow dark and grave”
Norm it is – Darkness pervades.
How stupid, yet how smart!
Darkness brought me money,
Money brought me luxury.
At last, we lost the light,
that creates, bestows thy might.
 
 
The child cried, the mom cried.
Why has life gone wrong ?
Mom knew not the child knew what
Child knew not the mom knew what
Distance increases, affection reduces.
I get ready, know not, to kill my mom.
 
 
Mugged and raped,She faced her fears.
Coward sons of infortune, you showed the rear.
Sons of providence, i call you here,
She cries alone with no one to hear.
What have you done to stop the deed?
All i hope is you will stop the bleed.
