Oh gosh…as a young mum…it wasn’t easy…

I’ve been screamed at

pee-ed at

made to stand guard

I’ve missed all appointments

My hair has grown wild

I’ve had my clothes puked on

I’ve had my face scratched 

My eardrums are splitting 

My eyes yet to shut

I’ve been clutched at

glared at

No time is my own

I have a new baby

A new mother I am
