A Letter To My Mother

A Letter To My Mother

Dear Mommy,

I am sorry that I was too young and naive to understand your struggles, frustrations and  troubles as a South Asian woman.

At such a tender age, I only saw the future as it concerned me.

As being a South Asian woman, it must not have been easy getting no support from your husband, family or relatives. Forget about the system in a third world country.

I curse any patriarchal, religious or cultural system that cannot respect a woman, give her rights and freedoms to be safe, at peace and loved with her children.

I am sorry that you did not have the opportunity to get education or confidence.

I love you a lot and miss you more.

I promise to treat every woman as my mother and my sister to make up for the lack of maturity as a child.

One day, I will come and meet you in heaven to tell you all the good that I was able to do because you were my inspiration.

Thank you for giving life to me and to my sisters and brothers.

Your love and goodness still resides in us to make us better human beings.

Please forgive us humans for not treating you well, taking care of you and protecting you.

I pray that you are in light, peace and eternal love.

Thank you for being our mother.

Good night, I remain always

 

Your daughter
