Death is Taboo

Black pestilence

Is in my heart

For I am the one

That can never know the love

Of a mother's touch

But do not feel sadness for me little one

For that lack will make me stronger

For now when I become a mother

I will know

What and what not to do

I will treat my children with respect

Not put them down with words

I will put them first

Before my own needs and desires

I will be a mother to them

Not a stranger
