#Poem - A Promise To Be Me



Challenging, exhausting
As it may be.
To not give up,
My identity.
Threatening a change,
To the reflection
I see.
But I must
Always be me.
Motherhood
I chose You
A part of me,
Not who I am
Entirely.
A happy child
And a happy me
No sacrifice
Need there be.
Yes,
This a promise
I made to me.
