I am only one person…I am only one mom
One parent today who can’t seem to hold on~
Their demands are so plenty
I tolerate it all
There is no one but me
Only MOM……when they call!
I am withering away….I am usually so patient
But just for today Lord
Make them stop calling MOMMY
please …….. just for one second!
I clean up their room ….put their animals back
To my utter amazement
….one throws an attack
The animals are all strewn back on the floor
Now their room is a mess just like before!
Should someone relate to my annoyed frustration
In me please confide~
I feel like I am losing it ….and I just wanna cry!~
I want to pull out my hair……I have nothing to lose
They are only children….Far from perfect, it’s true
But just for a moment …I shall hide in my room!
Now since I’ve been writing
…my son fell asleep
My daughter cleaned up all the mud from outside
In my room as I write all the thoughts in my mind
Lord blessed me just now
….and some peace I shall find!
