Thousand of thoughts emerged In my mind when I floated The basket into river water I cried a lot thereafter I do not know where it will take you I also failed to judge what was true Was it an escape route from inner soul? I shall go to almighty and crawl “Lord, I did sin to save honor” I left child in flowing river water I know child will be safe in your hands Will there be a tragic or happy end? I could not resist The move to desert Yet mother from inside rebelled “Coward or heartless” I may be labeled I shall pray forever For safety and well being there You shall flourish and breathe under safe cover I shall pray more and more however Had that been no compulsion? I could have taken courageous stand without confusion I feared a blot for me and on you as well I shall repent whole life for it to tell Many more mothers may be like me Not independent and bold enough to feel free I can not be called bold as it was an immoral act But I shall remain “Mother” to be considered for real fact
