Poem: Mother-in-laws

A smile
A nervous laugh
A question asked
Silence.

Didn’t want me around
Didn’t want me with him
Your child
My man
Smiling.

Go along, to get along
Is that what you learned?

Why be bothered?
Why involve yourself
Why not close your ears?
Allow your child to grow!

Be a woman
take care of your own business.

But no, you won’t.
Too busy smiling
Laughing
Putting on false fronts.
Asking questions.

And so he runs to you!
Mama help!
She’s hurting me
Help!
