Sometimes our pain goes so deep it feels like it’s cutting us in two, but I take comfort in knowing that pain like that is felt by everyone at one time or another. I feel like that’s what connects us as the human race. The love, hate, pain, and joy that we all have is universal. So everyone on the planet is connected one way or another by these shared emotions. Here’s a short poem about my recent pain.


The Heart of a Mother

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

As so many mothers are forced to do, I ended up feeling like a single mother a lot of times. Don’t get me wrong, I am so thankful I have been blessed with the wonderful husband I have. He just worked so hard to provide for us and it felt like he was never around. This was around 1996 when our 2 daughters were 3 and 5. I had a job and was in school but somehow most of the household responsibilities, even paying the bills fell on me. Anyhoo, that’s where this poem came from, many moons ago.
