Oh my son — An introvert Mother’s advice | Poem

‘Oh, my son’ is a poem about two pessimists/introverts — My mother and me.

Oh my son, my little lamb
Out there is a cruel world.
With wolves in sheep’s clothes,
Waiting for a golden chance.

Oh my son, my little child
Don’t walk towards the dark
Look at what is behind the trees
Instead of pondering over the stars.

Oh my son, my little traveller
Stop wandering around unknown lands.
Heaven seems far away in the skies,
Until you realize my advice.

Oh my son, my true love
Be a child rather than a man
Find joy in the tiny fortunes you have,
Mom loves you for what you are.

    1. I always obey these words… See? 25yrs old and still in a room 😀

      (Rejects google and facebook job offers) 😀

          1. I think it’s not only about our mother’s who give us such advice but at times, we ourselves keep oscillating between this introvert and extrovert traits simply coz we are affected by opinions or past experiences.
            So, it’s all in the mind but then we try to reach a solution where our heart lies.
            Win or lose, that’s all together another matter.

          2. I wish you were the girl who sit beside me in exam hall.
            Essay type questions r so difficult 😖

        1. I wont say u should forget all ur problems
          U should think about ur problems, share it with trustworthy friends, and gain strength from past problems 🙂

  1. Such a beautiful poem. It’s describing the concern of a mother for her child. And, the words are conveying such a wonderful message ❤️
    The poetry is reflecting the rhythmical creation of beauty in words like the strings pearl together ❤️😊
