His shaky hand touches the wall-
Of the hospital in a silent night.
His mother wakes up by his call.
Her lifeless eyes search with fright.
“Stop the torture for you poor mother.” She says.
His humming brings a glow into the room.
Her old body fights her spirit to stay awake.
His mourning pierces her through in gloom.
She sees a stormy ocean, so rare.
“Sorry for the burden, sorry you don’t have a brother.” She says.
His feet suddenly slid when he climbs.
Rocks rain from the wall on the ground.
He sings sad odes with rhymes.
She breathes his song, hear his voice.
“Relief me son, let me shudder.” She says.
The still and silent night in hospital creeps.
A police car speeds on the highway.
Moonshine peeks through window and sweeps.
Her innocent eyes in her withered face sees gray.
“Sign the paper, I miss your father.” She says.
