Poem - Motherhood

Today I'm feeling blue,
The kids are full of beans & chatter,
And I just want a peaceful day,
The thought of the park again makes me shudder.

Am I being selfish?
I just want some time.
I know I'm being snappy,
But I've run out of smiles.

I love my children dearly,
But would like a little rest, 
Is it OK to say that?
Why do I feel I've failed?

Kids are for life,
Everyday is full,
Some days are full of laughs,
Others boredom & tears.

Even on a bad day,
I know things will improve,
Happiness is on the horizon,
A kiss, a hug, a smile.

I feel better sharing,
I hope you understand,
Motherhood is hard sometimes,
But we'll all muddle through.



  1. Lovely poem. I can really relate. Some days I'm more than happy to go along with what my children are doing, but other days I just want to sit and watch them instead of sit and play with them. Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky

  2. Thanks for commenting. I think some days just feel so much more tiring. I think we need to be kinder to ourselves & not stress. Although easier said than done.
