Dear Single Mom

image

I’m just here to tell you that everything will be ok
You’ve been single and sexless for so long that you believe it’s all cobwebs down there
You’ve been struggling and stressed for so long you’ve started believing that things won’t get better
I’m here to let you know that there is light at the end of the tunnel
A light is not a man
A light is you
All you
You’ve been doing this for so long
All alone
Not so alone
Take a look in the mirror
See the strength that fights through your tears
See the love escaping from your stretchmarks
See the care flying out of your unwashed and unbrushed hair
See the power in those blackbags under your eyes
See the joy on your arms
Single mother, I am here to tell you that it will be ok
You are ok
Are the kids alive?
Are the kids fed?
You’ve done your job
No one but you expects perfection
Happy is all the little monsters ask of you
Leave the washing
Fuck the house!!!!
Spend time with the monsters and embrace the single motherhood that has been thrust upon you
Dear Single Mother………….okay
