NNE OMA - A Tribute To An African Mother.

This Brought back Memories of my mum and reminded me of my role to be a good role model to my Kids #Tearyeyed

Mama mia.
Made of black with a hand that never lacks.
A sight to behold with a heart of gold.
A light which ignites our might in the time of plight.

Iya wa Wuraola
Who watched us sprout from a suckling babe to becoming men of worth.
Who cradled our fragile bodies in her weak arms.
Whose breasts nourished us while getting painful teeth bite as compensation.

Ijele nwanyi
Who peppered our backs with the choicest koboko.
Moulding us into men of honour.
Whose slaps reconfigured our wayward minds.
Building us into men of principles.

Oriaku ogbuefi
Her eyes are the glistening lamps that beamed rays of love on us.
And always watched out for us.

Nnem oma
Her hands are tender arms that showered our bellies with best delicacies.
And hustled non-stop towards putting a shirt on our backs

Afo muru ogalanya
Her legs are a beautiful feet of gold.
Preaching the gospel to all nations.
Bringing up kids who are today conquering the world at large.

Achala ugo.
Her ears are patient bowls which are never tired nor dull in response.
Rising to answer the loudest attention seeking sob in the middle of the night.
And detecting the faintest cry of anguish which we strove to conceal from the world.

Ko Iye.
Your children are arrayed with clothes of thanks.
Their feets shod with shoes of sincere love.
To say thank you.
To say Daalu nne.

Thank you for this Beautiful piece!

I love this! I tried to back my son once, as our mothers used to do it in those days, but I just couldn't carry him on my back for 10mins.
My husband was even making jest of me.

Respect to all African mothers.

To ladies, don't ever let your spouse know how much u are worth.if they know u are rich they keep asking for money and not giving u, in the name of you already have.

Miss Ess said...

Mothers are rare gem. God please heal my mom, ler her bones and flesh receive life in Jesus mighty name amen

Fab Mum said...

I love my mum. I love her so much. That woman is a super woman. . Sinxe I got married, there hasn't been a day we don't talk. Like we talk every day. And we speak for a minimum of 10 mins. That's the day there is no gist. But when there is gist, we speak for over an hour. Hubby will be like, the way you and your mom discuss on the phone like you both are sitting together and gossiping.

I pray I'm a good mom to my kids like my mom is to us. I remember some things she did when I was a kid and I said oh, this woman hates me. Who knew she was moulding me to be a better person

Awwww..nice piece

Fab Mum said...

I don't back my kids
My new helps backs my baby everyday and I'm hoping for both our sake that she intends staying for long, because I'm not about to start all this when she's gone...

KIDJO said...

God bless my mum.My strong backbone.Maybe God bless and keep you alive my sweet mum.My mum is ready to starve so we can eat.I love my super mum.Iye-nogie😍😍😍

Fab Mum said...

It's my dad that can come and wake you up at 3am just to tell you he didn't like something you did. As my dad didn't use to beat us. If my dad slaps you, you can faint. So he doesn't beat us. He beat me only once in my whole life and my siblings once or twice but my mom, OK God, that lady van beat you so much and not break your bone. She's a pro

Fab Mum said...

Thanks so much Stella. Glad it brought back great memories. God bless all mothers in the house

David Baller said...

There's nothing I love in this world as much as my Mum. I'd rather have her than have anything in the world. She's the reason I work so hard because I really, more than anything, wish to make her proud and buy her all the good things she deserves.

My Momma,My Everything,I love u mami,may God provide for me to take very good care of u and my Dad.Iya ni wura,iya ni iya mi oo,abiyamo tooto love u momma

LIGHT said...

My sweet mother, my ray of hope,the centre of my world,you believed in me even when i didn't believe in myself,you stood by me like a rock when i thought it was all over,when i didn't see the light @ the end of the tunnel,you showed me the sky,even @ 8:30pm you said it was bright enough if i could look beyond the dark clouds and see the stars instead. Even when you had to sell all you had,you did it with joy.when your colleagues were collecting loans to buy cars and build houses,you collected yours to pay my school fees. You are the reason i hustle mum so that i can give you the best you deserve. I will take you round the world and take you to those places you only dream about. Stay healthy for me please,I love you to the moon and back.

MrsB said...

How did I miss this??
MàÑmi! Saying I love you is an understatement. Iyè mi, you will never lack! You and my father will never lack. You've suffered way too much for it to be this way. This I promise you! You will never lack, I will take care of you like you have 5 wealthy children by the grace of God

My beautiful mum, iya tooto abiyamo wey no dey take her children play. She took in the role of both mother and father on many days, her kids are why her hubby is seriously indebted to her till now. She can't let you be oppressed by anyone or anything. She's why people thought I was from a rich home, she won't let any other kid intimidate hers or let her kids be enticed by sugar daddy. She left her dreams so I could fulfill mine. Took countless loans because of us, one of the loan sponsored my first trip abroad for a course while my father & family were a doubting Thomas. That first trip was my opened door to the countless opportunities I and my siblings have today. she's an amazing grandmother and a great mother inlaw. She is selfless and would lend support to a total stranger. Now that we are all grown and miles away from you, you still cater for people's children like you can eradicate poverty from the whole state. The world can't afford to loose you anytime soon maami. Love you forever and always
