Mothers and Messes

Mothers and Messes

He came to me the other day

Smiling brightly waving his page

Look, Mommy, what I have done

He bragged a bit and it was fun

I set my book on the table

And took the time to read his fable

I looked at the paper and what did I see

Scratches he wrote imperfectly

Processed with VSCO with c2 preset
Devyn, Eythan, Charity, Aryanna nd Kyle

I couldn’t make sense of the mess he had made

But glanced at him before his smile did fade

We hugged and I told him his childish page

Was perfectly wonderful for his young age.

I am a mother and what should I do

Show a small child he’s cherished too.
