Innate Pride

.

Walking tall

Toddler tagging

Newborn

In kangaroo pouch

These women

These mothers

Hold their heads up high

Patient without equal

Uncomplaining

Self-sustaining

Proud to be

Who they are

And what they are

Women, mothers

Waiting

Post No. 821

Waiting

.

Wrapped in blankets,

Morning air as cold as ice,

The queue not too long today,

Getting to know the price

Of rising late…

.

Here and there a baby grizzles

But seldom cries – snug

As a bug in the layered rug,

Wrapt against its mother’s breast.

Many have another –

A sister or a brother – holding

Tight, safe and sound on the ground.

.

The line shuffles forward,

Breath condensing, compressing,

And warming the air;

Five minutes more,

Another five minutes

Until they open the door…
