A Mother's Day Poem

May 12, 2018

A special mother’s day poem was written by one of Write Things Manila’s young writers from the 2017 batch. Andrea wrote this poem when she was 16 years old and was included in Write Things Manila’s annual anthology, In Our Own Words Volume 4 that was published in December 2017.




by Andrea, 16 years old


I’m not good with words
In paper or aloud
But I will still write


Card, bag, and flowers
None of these can say the words
That you want to hear


Though my mouth is shut
My heart wants to sing a song
Only for your ears


I don’t have a gift
But if I could buy you the world
I’d give you the stars


I’m not a kid but
I’ll always be your daughter
Happy Mother’s Day
