My name is Ma and it varies depends on how you call your mother. I wake up early in the morning. Of course, every kid like my kid who prepares for board exam wakes up in the morning. But, I don’t snooze my alarm. Indeed, I don’t need it to wake me up. I just wait, since when I go to bed, for Sun to rise.
Nobody is there to test me, indeed I don’t give tests to prove myself or to get some rank better than others in any race. I just get up and start the day just to beat the merciless time. In fact, why does the time show mercy?
I don’t have a job as some of you have or I don’t live to get a job as some of you are dreaming for to lead an independent and better life. I don’t get tired in the process of doing what I do. Indeed, as every kid at home says, I do nothing other than moving from one room to other room with tense and haste.
I am consumed by time. My day is bigger than twenty four hours. It never ends still I never have time to rest and even to take food peacefully. All I have in my mind is responsibility, love, concern and care. I take responsibility of making my kids good citizens but they call me outdated. I love to do every little and big thing for my hubby but he says I irritate him. I concern my in-laws’ health and they murmur I am too slow and lazy.
I wake up in the morning not to prepare for any exam to earn and live a life on my own: I get up early to prepare my kids for the battle. I ready everything before my hubby goes out to work, not to impress him but to make his day happy. I keep on looking after my in-laws not because I have to do but because I concern to do.
I don’t these things as you do work at your office or as you prepare for some exam or even like preparing for some Olympic game. I do my work persistently from sunrise to till I go to bed. I did it yesterday, I do it today and I will do it tomorrow. I do it every day of this year, and the next and the next till my every bone gets crack and my every cell gets dried up. I worry about your health aunt, and uncle. I never feel you burden. Since the day I have come here, you are my parents. It’s my responsibility to make your life longer and happier. I do things because you are my kid. I bring you to the world because I love to have you. I do things because I love to do every bit of your thing. I want to forget myself in your service because I always love mixing in you, dear hubby. I don’t need your appreciation. I just need your time to hug me, kiss me, chat with me and play with me. They refresh me. They comfort me. They make me stronger.
My name is Ma, I am your Ma.
