HappinessA Poem by P.S.
The Joys of Motherhood
Happiness comes from helplessness
Though not as a damsel in distress
The thought that you are now a pawn
That you shall forever be a Mom
Happiness comes from a searing pain
Hours of crying without any gain
And although your body can barely endure
For your baby you would do much more
Happiness comes from crying with joy
A beautiful daughter or a charming young boy
The first piercing cries of a new life
The joyous sobs of a mother and wife
Happiness is loss of what is yours
To school, to work, to love, to life
And dreams that they must satisfy
The loss to make them choose the right
Happiness is remembrance
What you gave them, they now use
To start the cycle you started anew
And while you may play a supporting role
You gave them what they knew as home.
