What My Mama Said To Me…12

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
you can’t stand on the ground
and be pointing up at the ripe palm nuts,

You must be willing
to get your fingers stained with oil palm
in order to enjoy its succulence.

What My Mama Said To Me…7

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
never gripe and whine about
how heavy your cross is,

‘cos in the warehouse of crosses
you might find that
yours is the lightest of all.
