To The Mom
To the single mom, the working mom, the stay home mom, the tired mom, the hormonal mom, the struggling mom, the defeated mom, the poor mom, the rich mom, the good mom, and even the bad mom:
Our days may look different but our purpose is the same
We face each trial and triumph with the same end game.
This perfect little child was entrusted to us
We never imagined it’d be such a fuss
I can’t do this! We think once a day
Then we feel guilty for thinking this way.
Where’s your other half who pledged his love to you
One day you woke to find that he was through
Where are the days when you just want to be home
But it pays the bills to go answer that phone
Where’s the break, when there’s no end in sight
You aren’t sure how long you can fight.
Where’s the rest that you so desperately need
“Let this child sleep”, to the Lord you plead.
Where’s the peace when it’s emotions you face
You are ashamed to be in this kind of state.
Where’s the quiet place when you’re facing a struggle
But the kids need you to be there on the double
Where’s the hope when you’ve lost it all
You aren’t sure how many times you can fall
Where’s the money when you have none
You can’t take the pressure, you are done
Where’s the content with all that money
It doesn’t buy happiness, you were told that honey
You see we seem to think that each mom has it better
But there’s always a storm that one has to weather.
Let’s not compare who has it worse
But change our mindsets and see our self worth
Regardless of your role, we have one that’s the same
To raise a child the best we can, we have the same end game.
