I’m Sorry

Lashing
Words read
Vile
Bitter
Striping self-confidence
Read
Re-read
Message makes no sense
Bunny teeth
Look in mirror
No longer smile
My confidence
Shredded
No longer feel beautiful
No longer feel my worth
Then I realize
Anger
It is not with me
It is not about me
I am comfort
I am steady
I am always there
Realize now
Excitement faded
Joy
Replaced with disappointment
But mom can take
My strength
I understand
A learned trait
(Thank you mom)
Absorb it all
Take it in
Tears cried in private
This is what it means
To love unconditionally.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
