As a mother, I carry more than what I can hold.
We carry lots of loads as mothers.
We carry our children.
No matter their age,
we’ll always pick them up.
They reach. They ask. We hold.
We carry their emotions,
And our own emotions too.
We carry their
We carry our thoughts.
The endless to-do lists and “wait I’m
forgetting something” conversations
we have with ourselves.
We carry the school schedules and sports
schedules and other activities schedules
and every schedule we have organized in
multiple places in multiple formats.
