Imperfect. (My first attempt at poetry, ever!)
If you saw me at my worst
When I said bad things or cursed
When I wasn't quite the soul I wish to be.
Would you always hold it near
In your thoughts when I'm not there
Would it be what you forever think of me?
Will you whisper, will you gossip
Tittle tattle bitch n gossip
She did this n she did that
Will you please cut me some slack?
Will you pat me on the back?
When I pick myself from being on the floor?
It's so easy picking on
Something bad someone has done
Something sad or bad that happened
But don't a mama get a break?
Don't we all deserve to shake
Off old crap and really, really let things go?
We are learning things each day
Trying to find a brighter way
Always doing what we think will be the best.
So lets be a little nicer
To each other in this life
Cos it's much too short to hate or waste in strife.
Let's love one another
All us brave and gorgeous mothers
Cos we need to stick together not be split
Into cliquey little groups
feeling smug down to our boots
Putting down the other mamas we don't like
Could be us that does or says,
something she one day regrets,
could be us who needs a hand to lift us back
Time to put our faults aside
Stand together side by side
imperfect mothers all we are
And proud of it!!!
