Motherhood

It isn't the title,

It is the hustle

It isn't a competition,

It is a mission

 

Motherhood isn't only about carrying a child and giving birth

It is, to some people, a never ending journey

That starts with sexual intercourse,

Followed by pregnancy, birth, growth, and so on.......

 

To others, it is a painful quest 

That begins with one or multiple miscarriages 

or even sterility itself,

pursued by depression and sadness, 

and compensated with adoption  or surrogacy.

 

Each Journey starts and ends differently.

Each mother's coping mechanism varies.

It is a long journey, filled with memories and trials,

it is a complicated path, 

but the end makes it all worth it.

 

Motherhood isn't about being a perfect mother,

it is about being your best at raising your child,

making sure that he/she doesn't become a shame to society.
