I’m learning what it takes to be a mother
I’m selfish and I need to recover
With my words I don’t trip nor do I stutter
So why in my mind is it a clutter?
I’m learning how it feels to be a mother
Her smile, her hugs, her heart, there’s no other
I’m drowning in her love, my heart flutters
So why are my emotions deep down in a gutter?
I’m learning what to do as a mother
To sacrifice my happiness for another
I’m feeling hopeless, but if she needs me, I hug her
If nothing is in my control, at least I know I will love her
I’m learning how to change as a person
Life hits me with distractions and diversions
Don’t know where to go, which direction to turn in
I’m her mother, but she’ll lead me, cause I’m still learnin’
