It can be so hard but you are going the right way, the kids come first and as long as their step mum is kind to them, as I am sure she will be all will be well. You will always be their MUMMY.

A heartbreaking poem, focusing on an increasingly common phenomenon, but written and posted here by a loving and seemingly emotionally mature and selfless mother... A woman who is not only a credit to her two children, but also to her species..... Bravo Maxine, I take my hat of to you.... Respect...... Neville

Thanks for caring & sharing MAXINE ! We hope & pray it never happens to US when we get married next Year & start a Family. Friends & Members of our extended Family have gone through the same. The hardest part (as you mention !) is having them call another LADY MUMMY. But in your case to be kind to your EX ~ who will always be their DADDY you have to be cruel to yourself ! A difficult poem to write I am sure you found it CATHARTIC. Thinking of you and praying for you 24/7 !

Blessings & Love & Peace
Yours as always ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

Good write Maxine. Yes - we can\'t know, we can\'t say, we can\'t judge, of other\'s situations. We don\'t even know people in the street or town, unless we bump into a friend or relative there.

Powerfully expressed and the plight of many young women and how society comments on them in negative annoying ways. One shouldn\'t care less, be carefree about their looks and comments, just ignore them and fly breezily as if they don\'t exist. Soon they will know they don\'t make a dent on you. You are pretty from what we see so imagine all the real ugly women in the world , I tell everyone to look those below you, they are surviving ok. Not everyone has to look a beauty pageant, there are other areas and skills for women not just the looks department gahh. So kudos for your creative awesome poem!

In our life we are tested and rightly so, without those experiences we would never learn and without that knowledge you would never have become the wonderful person you are now.

Thanks for posting MAXINE : What you say is so so true ! Our perception of PEOPLE is never the REALITY : because of our misconceptions and prejudices ! GOD does not look on OUTWARD APPEARANCES ~ Too much makeup - Figure - Bad hair day - Ill clad and shod - unable to control her children etc etc ! GOD looks on the inner-person ~ GOD looks on the HEART and so should we ! Thanks for caring & sharing !

Blessings & Peace & Love
Yours ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

HOLA MAXINE GRACIAS POR TU POEMA : PARABLAS = WORDS ~ Enjoyed it ! The definition of Modern Poetry is : Any Words in Any Order : Without Rhyme Rhythm or Reason ! Modern Poets never get WRITERS BLOCK ! However I am a PERFORMANCE POET and my main criteria for a piece of writing to be a POEM IS : It must be recitable ! Initially Poetry was an ORAL TRADITION ~ Poeple sat round the Camp Fire and recited (and learned) their History & Cultures through SAGAS. Poetry that is written mainly for SILENT READING has lost its roots : OK
ORAL POETRY can never be lost (its all in the MIND !) and YES it does alleviate suppressed EMOTION : AMEN

Sometimes we can fit words into reduced spaces of expression. It\'s a beautiful concept you have here. Leaving the imagination with few words creates the beautifully written just a few words poem. I think you did a great job for you clarity in thought.
