To love a child is to let him a milky taste of life
Squeeze your chest into its cradle mouth
Whilst his spine solidifies upon your thighs
And humanity sinks into his mind
To love a child is to be his first companion
Tête a tête ; let his eyes fix onto yours
Let his breath whirl through your motherly skin pores
As he speaks of compassion without his tongue
To love a child is to love the world
Give us heroic sons; healthy and bright
To love a child is the will of God
For your milk is pure and divine...
Am a messenger of God to the world
My scripture is art
And my art is my message

Nowadays, mothers hardly breastfeed for a year, this which I believe is a result of their ignorance of the social, spiritual, mental and physical importance of breastfeeding in the life of a baby and the family as a whole.
The aim of this work is to protest against the early stoppage of breast feeding so as to help the new generation. Remember, individuals make a family, families make a society and societies make a nation.
Train your child in the right way so we can have a generation of glorious, wonderful and talented children. It's not by magic or prayer alone. This little things count, it goes a long way
