The Mom

The Mom

The mom going through sleepless nights.
The mom handling multiple babies.
The mom going to work because she needs to.
The mom going to work because she wants to.
The mom who doesn’t want to work but is forced to.
The mom who wants to work but is forced not to.
The mom who keeps her child away from her, so that she can work night shifts.
The mom who stays at home to look after her child, but despairing because the child won’t eat what she made.
The mom dreading the day when her baby will grow up and go to school but feeling happy at the same time.
The mom reluctant to put her child in daycare because she has never been away from her child.
The mom who cries in the bathroom so that her child won’t see her tears.
The mom juggling all responsibilities and feeling guilty about not devoting time to her child.
The mom taking care of her child and feeling guilty about not being there for family.
The mom doing everything yet feeling guilty.
The woman who wants to be a mom.
The mom who wants to be a woman.
I see you.
I have been there. We all have.
Just remember, one day, all of this will be behind you and you will look at it and smile.
Keep faith. Keep going.

I am with you.
