The day I became a mother

Hi everyone, It’s been 3 years now that I have been dealing with a severe RA. I’m not stabilized yet and days are getting harder, I wanted to share one of the poems that I have, I write when I’m not good just to vent… And I wanted to share this one with you

The day I became a mother was like a dream come true
My baby was perfect but my heart was some kind of blue
The day I became a mother I didn’t know what to expect
I had this beautiful little baby that I had to protect
The day I became a mother I didn’t know that my body would be my worst enemy
And that every night I would have to cry like a baby
The day I became a mother I knew my life would never be the same
But I didn’t know that RA would be the one to blame
The day I became a mother I didn’t know how hard it would be
To take care of my daughter and be barely able to take care of me
The day I became a mother was the beginning of a new life
With a debilitating disease and a wonderful child
The day I became a mother I thought I knew everything about the pain
But then RA came into my life and hit me again and again
The day I became a mother I thought there would be nothing unbearable
Until I had to breastfeed, clean, cook and set up the table
The day I became a mother I was capable of everything
And then I realized that everything was turning to nothing
The day I became a mother was the first day of a new fight
I was fighting for my family and for this love that I was trying to hold so tight
The day I became a mother was the best of all
Even if I didn’t know what the future would be made of.
