Mother, Middle Aged

Mother, Middle Aged.


Forlorn, she sinks into the abyss of a middle aged
mother,  her pupae no longer the apple of her eye.
Baffled, she sees her cocoon torn open and barged 
hastily, fumbling in quest of sham grown ups’ pride.
A mother she remains, middle aged. Spiteful and void.

    Well, that's a very hard take on the poor woman, perhaps men should try men-o-pause and see how they act? It is one heck of a write though even if I don't like the topic, great writing! Congrad's on your win. Light & Love

    Sad ....Middle age is such a great time of life..One has maturity to make good choices and not as much responsibility with child rearing..Enjoyed reading your poem about the subject..Sara
