Happiest

I am at my happiest

when I am in control,

don’t leave with unanswered,

or else I will cry.

Don’t hide away,

I am not diseased,

I think different, yes,

but that does not stop me,

from being human,

I have feelings like you,

I am not less valid,

because I am different,

so please don’t judge

all I want you to do

is understand

sometimes I don’t

sing from the

same hymn sheet.

Contentment 

Sometimes I am knackered,

But then I look at you

Drifting off to sleep,

Knowing you are happy

And content.

The doubts of motherhood

Erode away,

Knowing that I might be

Doing this crucial job

OK and then for moment

I applaude my role

And that deep down

I’m doing OK.
