A Letter to Dear Mom: Can you Make it Heaven?

Dear Mom,

One moment, please! Do you think I am safe inside the womb, eating food and enjoying all the time? The fact is not at all. I feel every second of you, experience every happiness and pain of yours. Not only this, but whatever you do, it transmits through every nerve. When you sit as per your convenient way, but you never imagine what’s the best position of seating while you have a baby inside your stomach. You don't feel me cry, but I can feel you when you are sad.

You sleep after eating heavy and junk food, but it is very hard for me to digest and extract the nutrition from it. When you wake up late, sometimes without bath, you go to the office and keep me waiting for hungry. I have to wake up in an awkward time and what it results? I end up the lack of proper development on the given schedule. You walk more than you need, and then I feel like I am in the sky and travelling upside down, I have tiny muscles and that also get tired.

You keep your regular schedules from starting of the day to the end of the day, I find nothing changes. When it goes out of my control, then I have to kick you to make you aware that — It is enough and someone is inside you. Do you think it is a task? Don’t ever, it is the life that builds your future.

You eat a lot of sugar, which troubles me, why don't you go for natural sugar? When you go exposing your stomach to many people in the market or office I could hear them, I can't tell you how it annoys me. Especially when you go by local train, I feel like I have jumped off the air-plane, and I am going to die in a few seconds, or it affects me badly on my psych.

You eat all the non-sense in your lunch, what I need or like who will tell you? When the doctor says that medicine is important in your pregnancy, you just avoids them and bunches of tablets goes waste in the trash can. You don't even read stories for me, don't go to a temple. If you visit a temple at least once in a week, I will get a peace of mind. You always love crowded places and pollution is your favorite.

You think about yourself, you are selfish — not even about your life partner.

A Letter to Dear Mom: Can you Make it Heaven?

I can't explain how I did feel when you were travelling in the suffocated bus, I thought that someone had placed a pillow on my nostrils. There is no extra room so that I could make free movements in the stomach. You are so risky woman but don't go beyond the limits, have a safe journey and these things are for whom? Money?, I, Or for you?

But one thing between you guys I cannot bother at all, you guys are staying away, you broke with my father I should die inside. How long this war will be there and living alone? Now I am worried about whom I will love the most? I could bear anything, but not a single fight between you. When you cry a loud, while fighting, I pulled my legs so close and tight, I thought something bad going to happen to you. I always think outside there is only hell. Can you make it heaven?

Yours…
