Becoming mother.

Motherhood has been a continual becoming for me

becoming stronger
stronger than I ever knew I could be

Being thrust into the very present
of the sweetest highs
or counting each breath when I have nothing more to give

becoming more honest
of my needs
my limitations

no running ahead into the future
with so many unknowns
and shadowy obstacles

but knowing that just for this stage

this day

I can be mother
becoming the mother
that I need to be
