Bubble by Ta’Shala Taylor




The Glass Bubble

Has always been there

It came with the

Guardian

2 for 1 special

 

child: may i leave the glass?

Guardian:No.

child:why not?…….

Guardian:Because I said so.

 

tink, tink, tink

 

The outside world

Consumed by darkness

I want to be 

Consumed

The urge of not knowing is

Draining

The guardian is there

For “protection”

But feels like 

I

Am 

Cell

In

With 

No

Visitation

 Mamas Arms

Free,

Connected , Comfort ,Love

    Is all what I feel in mama’s arms

Nothing outside of these arms matter anymore

Because I’m safe here .

Im safe from anyone trying to hurt me 

Safe from Judgement,

Safe from the walk to the store

Safe from the Jog

Safe from the traffic stop…

 

Fears and concerns is all gone when I reach Mamas arms

                                                            Any questions I have

Call mama she has the answer

 And There will be no question if it’s right

Her love is indescribable and her strength is unmatched

Mamas a wife

Mamas a friend

Mama is a counselor

Mamas a sister, 

Mamas a mother.

   And  even all that weight from society,

Cant bring mama down.

 When mama is

Hurt

Lost

 in pain

 Or Worried

Tuh we’ll never know

Mamas is good

Mamas is always good

 Mama never  lets a hard time be seen

 

Mama’s time to nurture is never ending

She gives from places

 she only knows it is empty..

But mama doesn’t get her strength from man

She gets it from above

When im weak she tell me

everythings going to alright  

When i reach her arms I go to another place

 a safe haven

Nothing matters anymore cause I have reached

 Mamas Arms
