Wonder woman wonders

A Poem by G. Marie"floating on an endless sea of poetry"

Wonder woman

I had strived to be

juggling family

and a career

with little fear

 

It seems to be the norm now

No one could ever tell me

how would I ever know

I robbed Peter to pay Paul

now Paul is mad

and Peter feels bad

and the children felt sad

that i never went to their games

at school they felt ashamed

for I was too busy playing the game

 

I've abandoned the game

but some were hurt along the way

I couldn't please everyone

No, not even myself

torn between my own selfishness

I was left with a mess

 

Wish I could rewind the clocks

to go back in time

I would go to all my kids games

and go to the park with them more

or just shopping at the store

for a day out for us to enjoy

work work work

for what did I work

they needed me more

 

She looked for me at the school play

and at her school concert

and my chair was empty

I was out chasing dreams

a good mother i had seemed

in my eyes

they had all their needs met

but all they wanted was me

 

A lesson learned a little late

somehow they love me still

and their mom they do not hate

regrets come with a price

and makes one feel not nice

now i have the little one's

of my children

to spend time on

Life does go on

and somehow we survive

but not without a tear in my eye

The archetype of the Perfect Mother is just too much pressure. The emotion in this poem leaves no doubt about the love you have for your family. The opportunity for memories in the past may be lost sometimes...but there are always memories to be made in the future. It's funny how some of the most memorable gifts from our parents are often things they didn't realize rose above the realm of ordinary.
