What My Mama Said To Me…11

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
grumbling from Jericho to Jerusalem
is never going to make your dough rise;

not when you’ve failed
to add much-needed yeast
and to give it the required kneading.

What My Mama Said To Me…10

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
there comes a time when
you’ll tell your goat
to stop giving its milk for free,

‘cos a neighbour
used to getting free milk
will never purchase his own goat
instead, he’ll milk more to make cheese.

What My Mama Said To Me…9

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
this life is a marketplace
filled with useful and useless goods,

what you fill your basket with
determines how profitable you’ll be
at the end of your purchases.

What Mama Said To Me…8

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
in life the rejection that hurts most
is the rejection of self

If others reject you for your differences
make sure that you are
full of self-acceptance.

Mama said to me, baby,

 never make fun

of the burden borne by others,

‘cos if they perchance share their load with you,

you would find that

its weight could bend your spine.

Mama said to me, baby if you find that you are not happy there,
never choose not to remain there in a sad state,
because you haven’t been planted like an Iroko tree.

Don’t you know that even an Iroko tree can decide to excuse itself
by choosing to rot and wither from within,
rather than suffer the insult of insolent birds?
