I’m trying, trying to demonstrate how I want my own boys to be
How I hope they will treat others…
But I am pushed back, not by them
I am not allowed to provide them the example I wish for them to witness
I have done all I feel I can, and then I try more
And my heart starts to ache, my breathing increases, but shallow
Don’t they deserve more?
Who are their role models?
How will they be better fathers and husbands if they haven’t witnessed a better example?
My purpose in my life was without a doubt to be a mom
And I will always work to be better at my purpose
Be kind, be considerate, be unselfish, be giving
Be love, be happiness, be compassionate, be alive
Be nurturing, be supportive, be forgiving, be strong
Be a hero in your future children’s eyes
….and do not allow a moment to slip by when you can be everything to them
