Mother Said

“Leave this town,”
my mother said
These three words
live in my head

“I love this town,”
my mother told
But you are young
and I am old

“The world is wide,”
my mother taught
These four words
I seized and sought

“Enjoy the world,”
my mother shared
and thanks to her
I did and dared

The poem "Mother" is lyrical, inspiring, and guiding, written in common diction in which the poet as the central character acts upon his mother's voice as the world is wide and staying only at a place can't make one wise. The roles of both are appreciating herein.

Wonderful poetry, Mark. Well said. It's a fact that mothers always know what's for the best.
