In Which I Attempt Poetry In Honor of Mother's Day

This is my pitiful attempt at a mother's day poem-- I hope you enjoy it. And I hope you enjoy mother's day!

(Note: dichotomy- a division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as being opposed or entirely different.)

A Mother's Dichotomy

"Be quiet!" I say

Stop talking

And fighting

And whining

And asking for things

Turn off the music, the voices, the




"I want silence," I say

Yet in the morning

When I return to an empty house

With the smell of toast and soap and hair spray

Lingering in the air

Mixing with the void they left behind

I stand still and take it in

For just a moment

And then I go

And turn on the television

Pin It!
