Son woke a day to see the sky so dark
unusually gloomy with angry clouds
son pointed up and asked mom
“Mom, why is the sky angry has he not any food to eat?”
perplexed mom looked up and beautiful but sad tears flew down her cheeks freely
they flew down through her mentum
son sensing some drop of tears on mom’s eyes
oh God, those holy tears of hers
tears that reminds him of hardship
tears that reminds him how hard their stomach rumbles
tears that reminds him that they had to look on passerby with a small money bowl for survival
son soon felt tiny drizzle of rain on his sore skin
it dawned on him that they won’t feed their ever demanding stomach that day
Son bursted into uncontrollable tears.
