The hole in me

There is a hole in me. I know it is there but it is somewhere that I can’t see.

I feel it is slowly eating me but I don’t know why.

Something bad has a hold it will not let me fly.

There is a hole in my stomach and it is eating me. Growing and growing devouring me .

Why am I suffering what have I done wrong the pain has been gnawing at me for so long.

Suddenly I realize that the pain is not in me, the pain is in my child why could I this not see.

I bore them, I love them I have set them free. So why does their pain keep plaguing me.

    What a haunting thought. The interconnectivity of people is far deeper than we realize. Wonderful work, Willow

    Wow, this one aches, Willow, fully aches.
    I believe I will feel Daniel’s every downfall, and I am SO bracing myself, for I am so, so bonded to my boy, bonded by love.

    This is well expressed.

      My dear Noeleen you are right to prepare yourself. Strangely you will probably find their ups and downs their crisises hurt more deeply than you expect. But you are a strong mother able to cope. You will be fine. Xxxxx

    I that love that each stanza develops the understanding of the monterous hole. There are many things in life we do not comprehend right away and then it dawns on us. Very true poem; very beautiful Willow.

    I think we are connected to our children in a way that we feel their pain and sorrows as if it were our own.
