I'm Learning

I’m learning what it takes to be a mother

I’m selfish and I need to recover

With my words I don’t trip nor do I stutter

So why in my mind is it a clutter?


I’m learning how it feels to be a mother

Her smile, her hugs, her heart, there’s no other

I’m drowning in her love, my heart flutters

So why are my emotions deep down in a gutter?


I’m learning what to do as a mother

To sacrifice my happiness for another

I’m feeling hopeless, but if she needs me, I hug her

If nothing is in my control, at least I know I will love her


I’m learning how to change as a person

Life hits me with distractions and diversions

Don’t know where to go, which direction to turn in

I’m her mother, but she’ll lead me, cause I’m still learnin’
