Divorced Kids / Poem by Olfa Philo

Divorced Kids

disconnect from me and keep close to your high-tech gadgets and Wi-Fi !
my womb has already disremembered you former connections with me…

disconnect from me and enjoy the alluring gifts and delicious food !
gestation is over and my umbilical cord has no more supplies for thee…

disconnect from me and enjoy the facilities of this icy world !
my comfy lap no longer remember any trace or smell of thee…

disconnect from me and taste the soft and non-soft drinks !
the milk I breastfed you with for two whole years failed
to infuse love in thee…

disconnect from me now and enjoy your calm and deep sleep !
the unsleeping nights I spent rocking you in my arms faded into oblivion…

disconnect from me now and enjoy the luxurious spacious home!
my loft is not ample enough for demanding and spoiled offspring…

disconnect from me now and live (not leave) the life of your dreams !
I did leave my youth and dreams behind to keep that smile on your faces…

kick me out from your dad’s house now simply with your hollow eyes!
my altruistic nature will let you be happy and disremember all my blood ties…
