Hello, lovely people. Finally, I am back with the promised poem, which ties in nicely with Mother's Day. Yes, it's not Mother's Day for us in the UK, but the rest of the world is celebrating it today.


I am no poet, but these words have poured out of my heart. Often, I write to process what's happened in the past or when I come across others struggling in a specific area. This one is purely based on being a mother and the difficulties we go through every single day.


Interestingly, the difficulties have less to do with the child/children we are caring for and more to do with the societal pressures and stigma. This begs the question of why mothers face these difficulties and fathers don't. The only answer I can come up with is because we are women. Sadly, sexism lies at the core of the majority of societal issues, even in this day and age, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.


FYI, this poem got several likes and comments on my Facebook page when I shared it first. Many mums and grandmums poured their hearts out and shared their experiences. So, if you can relate to this, please like, comment, and share.


So here we go...
