Pushing Mother’s Day

This post is dedicated to my wonderful wife.





“Push, Push, Push”

Ignore the pain

Overcome the fatigue

“Push, Push, Push”


“Push, Push, Push”

Don’t think about the fear

Only you can save this child

“Push, Push, Push”


“Push, Push, Push”

Breastfeed, Soothe, Console

24 hours a day, repeat

“Push, Push, Push”


“Push, Push, Push”

Homework, face-time, college fund

Never enough at home or in the office

“Push, Push, Push”


“Push, Push, Push”

Love your child,

Love your partner,

Love your career,

“Push, Push, Push”


I see you, mother, laborer, lover

I feel your pain, your stress, your joy

I bow in gratitude, respect, and love


Happy Mother’s Day
