MOCKING BIRDS

Beady eyes all consuming, watches

from a tree, as I sit contemplative

observing my continence, flying closer

‘What would her breaking point be?’,

it gesticulates, gently cooing to the other

 

Teary eyed, she wept repetitively

as uncontrollable laughter erupts

the absurdity to weep over Bobby

as cause for such quixotic display

 

Her medical results came in

something I had passed on

during my pregnancy to her

Nothing dire now but we

need to operate before it

conspires to turn malignant

 

His school reports that he,

without proper support will

surely be a disappointment

as was the case for little Einstein.

 

Frightened, medical advice and tutors

I sought, only to find myself alone

in my battles, hoping to just hang on

None were forthcoming!

 

By weeks end, Doctors and Tutor

were found, only to be inundated

with many more requests thereafter

for the same.

 

They came once again,

the two birds wrestle in

love’s embrace, hoping to

dissuade the rock: my strength,

my terrace they choose to nest in

Mock me all you want!

 

My name isn’t Jessica for naught!

I will not quake at challenges

and I will surely NOT break

for I am strongest, within my broken self.
