New Mom Rant


I began to treat my friend
suddenly better, more important
Envied her tormented selfish life

She had a career! Fancy Clothes!
makeup to cover
that zit on her nose
(you seriously can’t see it)

I was disconnected
focused on baby milestones
I dreamt of freedom
unbearable burden
responsibility for life

She curled her hair with
a straightening iron
(blew my mind)
had breezy relationships
cried and fell apart she
reeked of drama
luxuries I will never have

I am mom
a puke stained, shit cleaning
milk cow with an attitude
and a bad haircut

Whoa! I read this again recently and was surprised at how angry I was, Hormones are some crazy drug! I don’t remember it being that bad.
