I FIGHT THE URGE TO BAWL


I fight the urge to bawl

Must be civilized
I am woman
I am mother

All the pain oozes through my veins
Raising Manchild
Mothering Womanchild

I must be strong
Must not show weakness

I am mother after all

When I ache, I shudder, I cringe
I feel what I feel
And only I alone will feel

I am alone raising my children
I fight the urge to bawl
No room for tears
I am mother

I fight the urge to bawl
But I do What I have to
I raise my children alone

Dark Spain
Spring 1997
