MAMA ALIMPENDA (2010) …..to be continued


Harusi ilishafanyika

Wageni makwao wakaregea

Mapochopocho yalishatiririka

Na vitu za fahari nyumbani zikabombea

Usiku wa manane ulishafika

Babake na mamaye kitandani wakatokomea

Jumaa tatu mama hangestahimili kutapika

Maisha ya mwanaye tayari yashaanzia

Alikuwa msichana na hakuna makosa yaliyofanyika

Ingawa babake alimkana na kichapo mamake kumwagizia

Kwa yote haya, mama alimpenda

Tumboni mwa mamaye alielea na akatoka kama ameundwa

Miaka kadhaa na yule msichana keshageuka kuwa kidosho

Baba aliyemkana kamuona tayari kugeuka awe fedha

Darasa la nane keshafaulu, zawadi ashalifunga kwa leso

Gwaride la fisi wazee nje ya nyumba tayari kumposa

Kilio cha huyu kipenzi wa macho chawasilisha yake mateso

Kakake washaendelea shule ya upili, maombi yake yapuuzwa

Ila mamaye mtoto, hakuvunjika moyo

Kabembeleza mumewe abadili nia

Kidosho keshapata bahati, kaendelea masomo

Njia nyembamba maishani, mama alimpenda

Kidato cha kwanza, pili, tatu, cha nne kwishamalizia

Chuo kikuu kaingia, kuepuka madhara ya maisha

Wakufunzi wamsumbua, alama wamkazia

Mrembo kajikaza, vikwazo kaziruka

Miaka kadhaa kapita, kazini keshaingia……………………………………………
