Becoming a mother


Becoming a mother
has made me
weaker, and
stronger, and
better.

Weaker because
I am no longer able
hold back my tears
or hide my emotions.

Stronger because
I am no longer
ashamed to let those tears
stream, or
let my love be
known.

Better because
I can love,
empathize, and
care more.
