you’ll be a wonderful mother

Perhaps you fear what the future holds
For a child born into a messed-up world
Or that we’re too old or stuck in our mold
To give up our best years

But you’ll be a wonderful mother
I saw it on Day 1
Saw your willingness to discover
And that’s what children want

Not a blank, immovable object
But a ball rolled down a hill
Not the stubbornness of rules
But the endless dance of wills

We’ll be a guide to them, not a master
And show them the story so far
And you’ll be a wonderful mother
Because you already are.
