You are worth it. They are worth it. It is worth it. -- a poem.

You are worth it

They are worth it.

It is worth it.

 

Every tear.

every tantrum.

Custody battle.

Back and forth.

Every time you doubt your own ability to do this, 

and not only do this, but do it well.

 

Look inside.

You are fierce.

You are strong.

You are bold.

And your love transcends any and every obstacle.

They are worth it.

It is worth it.

 

Not only are they worth it.

You are worth it.

Worth the struggle

Worth the fight. 

The Daily dying to self.

 

The beauty inside of you

is much more than you could fathom.

Or even see

as you stare into the mirror of darkness

confusion, and anger.

 

It is worth it.

 

In the spills, the 100 times of calling for "momma" in the middle of the night.

It is worth it.

 

You are worth it.

They are worth it.

It is worth it.

 

Motherhood.

However it comes,

Adoption, Fostering, Birth.

All worth it.

 

Let us stop the hate.

The games of comparison.

Let us instead embrace.

All walks.

All journeys.

All entrances into motherhood.

And all struggles in between.

It is worth it.

 

Momma, you are worth it.

How many times can I say?

You are worth it.

They are worth it.

It is worth it.

 

It ?

you wonder?

Its motherhood.

Its worth it.

 

The most profound journey.

Of ups and downs.

Death to yourself like no one can imagine.

Death to your fears

Your desires.

And the survival instinct no, no not for yourself.

for them.

They are worth it.

 

 

You are worth it.

They are worth it.

It is worth it.

Motherhood, is worth it.
