A POEM FOR MAMAS WHO NEED EMPATHY
I SEE YOU MAMA
I see you mama, exhausted to the bone, comparing yourself to all those other moms with clean hair and their kids in cute clothes in the most perfect photos.
I see you, mama, trying to keep your kids happy in Target by feeding them snacks or handing them your phone to watch YouTube shows.
I see you mama, struggling with the guilt of working or not working, but wanting to work, but also wanting to stay home.
I see you, because I am you. We are in it together. I see you, mama, getting to 4pm miraculously and wondering how you'll make it to 7pm. I see you, because I am you.
I see you, mama, with your kids melting down, you want to melt down. I see you, because I am you. We are one.
You need to know: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
