Here’s a little poem:

if you’ve ever just wanted to be by yourself
if you’ve ever shouted “stop crying i hate this”
if you’ve ever wanted all of “you” back
if you’ve ever said “I miss the old me”

if you’ve ever said “is this thing she does normal?”

if ever you’ve nodded and said “i’m fine”
while thinking “all i want is peace and wine”
if you’ve ever felt horribly, hollowly alone
surrounded by plastic tat, and noise unknown
if you’ve ever felt like the one getting it wrong
the one who finds the days so endlessly long

then New Mum you’re welcome to join our gang
of every Mum in every land
who loves her kids, but wishes for patience
and calm, and peace and reassurance
And my love, I promise, you’re doing just fine.
