A Gripping Case Of Interrupted Symbiosis

Symbiosis

My mother Holding me

Last night I got the opportunity to go with a group of friends to see the play “How Black Mothers Say I Love You,” by Trey Anthony. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYpohFr7xvQ  At first, I was a bit hesitant to go, (because as a black person, I felt like I already knew,) but went any way. This play brought up a lot of Societal Issues. It talked about Inter Racial Marriages, Adoption, Teen Age Pregnancy, Abortion, Cancer, Death, Church, Same Sex Relationships, but most of all it spoke on the many interrupted cases of Symbiosis experienced between child and mother within the West Indian Family.

As infants, we depend on our parents for everything, but in many cases, the symbiosis between mother and child in the West Indian Community was broken. The mother in most  cases, left the child with a Grandparent to go to another country, example: England, United States or Canada, to seek a better way of life for the family. However, six or ten-years of separation can seem like a life time to a child, and in many cases family relationships were damaged, as that critical time for bonding was lost.

This play was funny and it was also sad. It also brought me to a realization as to how many of us share similar stories. Even though it was a play about black mothers, in the audience could be seen many Caucasians and Asians. We all stand to learn from each other, if we would take the time to listen and try to understand and have compassion for one another.
