sacrifice

That day when my mother lost herself

to the impassioned embrace of a man

who by virtue of the vows of marriage

possessed her body

in exchange of his resolute presence,

 

she relinquished herself

for the child who slowly grew

inside her womb

 

and prayed

to the God

who did not let her down.
