Would Have Been

Poem By Deluke Muwanigwa

Ironing, washing, carrying a baby

Would have been on the phone
Doing the gossip
Sweet on twitter
Swag on facebook
The selfie celebrity
Here i am at home

Would have been doing my nails
Doing my hair
Doing my lips
My eye lashes
Applying that mascara
Here i am alone

Can't go outside
Work day and night
Prisoner in my home
Feeding strangers
No appreciated
Tired, lonely and unhappy

Ironing washing carrying a baby
Ironing washing carrying a baby

Comments about Would Have Been

Thanks God we are not doing this " roning washing carrying a baby"
That's why a mother's job is thankless job ironing, washing and carrying a baby. Yet without complaint she does it for ages for her family - thee and their kids just without even uttering her discomfort and discord, losses and sacrifices only because she dreamt va family with thee.

Dear Barbie Doll, i wanna say i love you in case i pass on. This disease is upredictable and could have me breathless anytime. It's been 38 years of bliss, from that stolen kiss when you were fifteen. We have gone uphill and downhill together. When you cried i cried. When you laughed i laughed. Now, in our fifties, i wanna say you are still Barbara, my Barbie Doll.
