O--OVATION...!!!


Unknown land
she hails from
cognizant of pain
of morbid souls

At the age of twelve
she empathized
the famished, the ill
the diseased, the homeless

India, my motherland
turned to be her destiny

A nation full of homeless
poor to death


She grew to be a mother

no orphan, her dream
she hugged the ill, the poor
she fed the famished with love

she lived her life
serving the needy
beauty in giving
she found herself

Mother Teresa

a woman of love

a mother of hop
e
a life destined to charity

An ovation to Mother
from the Land of Dreams
for keeping alive hope to live
if not for self, for others


Written for May A-Z Challenge..!!!
