My Son

He pushes me from out of nowhere, causing me to go dizzy and throw up. He prevents me from eating what I want and forces me to eat healthy. What happened to my carefree life, my freedom? I wonder. But the moment I feel disheartened, my son taps me reassuringly from my womb. Now I realise that every discomfort is worth this moment of happiness.

barren land . . .
the sight of a rose
in a ravaged plant
