“A Mother is a Person”

a mother is a person

who gives birth

cleans up messes

kisses dirty faces

makes thousands of peanut butter sandwiches

and says no more often than yes

 

a mother is a person

who acts as chauffeur

personal secretary

and general contractor

housebreaks and feeds the dog

hunts for numerous articles

and hurts when her child is hurt

 

a mother is a person

who needs to remember

she is a person

― Mary Eleanore Rice, Images: Women in Transition
