I know it’s for the best
But it still hurts
Hearing mothers complain
For what I would give anything for
My husband says no
My doctor says no
My lifestyle says no
It makes so much sense
They forgot to tell biology
Stalking random kids
Imagining if they looked like me
A decision already made
That is not my choice to make
Holding other peoples’ babies
Without the confidence
Of a real mother
Feeling their judgement
Can’t learn on my own
The ache deep inside
Comes out in a groan

(2014)

I can't tell anyone how I feel , hurts too much to share.

Children, motherhood, kids, birth, sickness
