|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
Mothers sometimes find
On islands in an unfrequented sea.
The burden is too great to bear alone,
However much one loves, the mind too free.
Each must struggle not to be consumed,
Returning need for need voraciously,
Souls left to survive all on their own.
