Compared to her teenagers’ modern fancy mess.
Same story with her old wristwatch
Traveling, she prefers a bus to catch.
Same pair of shoes year after year
Outdated cell-phone attached to the ear.
She will rather enjoy food in a roadside canteen
Saving for children’s education, thus not appearing mean.
Spending money on herself not her personal trait
But children’s expensive tastes need not wait.
A mom may no longer utter “I love you,”
But that’s her hidden shield to protect you.
Uncaring women may be found everywhere
But you won’t find a single “bad mom” there.
