Daily post · Poem


She packed her bags ,

Carried as much as she could ,

She was ready –

So were many others ,

A backpack and an infant- her most valued

The only things she carried ,

They waited for the boat 

For an escape ,

For a living ,

For a safer place – 

The boat was full ,more than full 

It almost sank – 

People threw their bags 

She threw hers too 

Her baby cried- for he was hungry

People got angry 

She shut his mouth – 

With her palms 

No cry or cue of cry 

They landed safe , 

All were happy 

They said “fortunate ” 

Her baby never cried ! 

She lost him

The feelings unmoored her 

She was the unfortunate !! 
An unfortunate story of a mother who lost her baby while trying to flee to a safer place.In response to daily post prompt unmoored. Unmoored
