To Be a Mother


United States

I never really wanted children, in fear they might suffer like I have.

Alas, the love of my life wants a child, and to have a family with me.

Will I be good enough??

Will my love stay??

How can I tell him no??

All he ever wanted to do was to prove he would be a good father.

And I've never wanted to be a terrible mother.

All I know is when it happens,

Nothing will stop me from being the best I can be.

My family
