Whatever situation we are in, or whatever kind of mom we are, let us support and celebrate each other.
Here’s a short tribute to all working moms out there, and to my own mom, who tirelessly work to provide for us, all our lives— even to this date.
Mornings are busiest, sun is up and so are you
Attending to everyone’s needs and dressing up, too.
You set the day’s mood and try not to nag or scream
Even with the rush and the mess, you tend to our whims
Then it is time for you to go and brace the traffic
But here’s your little tot asking “why?” while frantic
“Mommy needs to work, I will see you later, baby”
Oh, why is it a pain to leave everyday lately?
At work you need to focus yet you miss us badly,
You sneak a little time to check on me and daddy
There is pressure in your job and tasks need to be done
While also setting up a party that must be fun!
How to be more fit, meals to prepare, and budgeting,
You are reading mom stuff while prepping for a meeting.
Your husband, your sibling, your boss all need something
Still you try to look best even when multi-tasking
You’re constantly thinking, oftentimes with anxiety
Working so hard, sometimes forgetting to be happy
You like your job and try to excel to be the best
But part of you wishes you can just go home and rest
You go home tired, yet you still have to be on “duty”
Making sure you spend your time with us oh so wisely
You always question if you are doing well, mama
Guilt always haunts you for not having enough time, huh?
Serving tirelessly, lovingly, and generously
You’re doubting and neglecting even yourself lately
Your worries, your stress and your tired mind and body
If only you’ll hear, we appreciate all, mommy.
Sometimes you just wanna shut down, or maybe snap and shout
Wishing to undo your breakdowns, and plan things all out
But mom, you are not perfect, and you never will be;
Still none can replace you, you are Loved, and best for ME.
