Arguing Her Argues

How could I not love them?
They grew beneath my heart,
waiting for my heart to beat
so that theirs’ would continue beating.

Did you not think
I would not know this?
And they would be reason enough
for me to keep breathing?

You did not know me . . . . .
Like a bear
I would fight for my cubs.
I made them. . . .

They wear my name
and one day
they will remember. . . .

who taught them about love.

    This poem touched me because it is so real for every mother. We protect our children even when we do not always like their actions.

    Debra, Not everyone looks at or feels parenting to be a sacred trust. It is a difficult thing to explain to those who don’t see parenting in this light. Thank you for commenting and welcome.
