So Why ?

The umbilical cord secured so long You dumped.
The hand that rocked the cradle is lost.
The shoulder on which I cried taken away.
But you are there mother….
So why I am alone?
My sobs lost in transit.
your heart has closed its doors on me.
You brought me into this world
Now you leave me caught in the tight tangles of tusks of life.
My tough exterior has a soft heart.
I am not a stone yet.
I am alive,please keep me sane.
Mothers are supposed to be there forever.So why?
