What It Was?
The sound was loud.
I did nothing for it was loud.
Wait... I thought I heard something,
I turned around and I saw something
In white with something red on top.
The sound suddenly stopped,
So i did the same, i stopped.
Freeze... I thought it will move,
But it didn't, so I didn't move
Any part of my body from the bottom.
'Huh...' I thought it was a goust,
'Is this it'? No it's not a goust.
It is her, the one i call mama,
The thing in front of me was mama
Then, I was to say, 'Happy Mother's Day'.
