Because I am not a perfect Mother
Because I got angry at my kids
Because I knew that I was in a bad mood and couldn’t prevent it
Because life didn’t go as planned
Because I’m pregnant and hormonal
Because I’ve gone through pregnancy like this before, with all it’s ups and downs, and my baby didn’t survive
Because I’m tired
Because I woke up with a kid in my bed and an ache in my back
Because I can’t do it all
Because I don’t want to do it all
Because I turned on the TV for my kids
Because I have no reason
Because some days its too much
Because some days its all to the same
Because some days the kids just want to fight each other
Because some days they just want to fight me
Because some days I have no fight left
Today I cried because I can. Because tears are a luxury that clear the way for a better view of life. Because they remove emotions that have been stagnant and stale and need to be expelled from my body.
Because salt water cures everything.
Because a good cry heals.
Because sometimes it’s the only way you can let go.
