It’s a Bump!

It is so easy when they are in your tums

showing off your latests phones to impress your chums.

You have no idea of the traumas that are about to come!

Look at you , looking so cool in the latest designer gear “innit”

with ya phone and ya cigarettes and your dreams in tatters

You don’t know the first thing about baby matters.

It is all so easy when they are still inside, you feel cool among your friends it makes you different gives you a sense of pride. Mind you it does get a tad scary when you wake in the night on your own with no where to hide.

Go on dreaming of your smart new pushchair with it’s central handle and three wheel drive and your new smart phone on which you so rely.

How ya  gonna cope when the pains come, and you truly believe an alien is trying to rip it’s way out of ya tum? Where will your friends be then? You will be on your own maybe just a midwife or if you lucky your Mum to hear you groan.

It is okay posing with your friends but what is going to happen when  the day ends.

You all say goodbye then they are all gone, you all have to get on with lives and cope with your babies on your own.

Not so bling , not so fun , no so Gucci  is it Hun?  All they do is feed and pooh and if they need changing or soothing it is all down to you. It is hard to keep the school work up to date, and sometimes Mum and  Dad don’t want to know and some of you get left to your own fate.

Some of you have to struggle on your own

no one to help for whatever reason you could not stay at home.

Some of you will marry your teen-aged bow but he will not have the skills

for a good job so, you both will struggle and you will row . Suddenly it does not

feel cool to be a teen-aged mum now.

Some of you will have to give up the chance of the career you yearned for

too busy looking after your babe, up to eyes in washing you cry behind your door.

So all I can say to you is that it is not all fun, it is hard and not glitzy to be a mum. You can forget your dreams of being a model or a pop star and you will be far too busy to get a top notch career to go very far.

So think about this and and don’t rush into mother hood if you are using it to be noticed or to escape . It is not big it is not right to have a bump as a badge  a baby is not for show a baby is for life.

Praying for safe return.

Sitting looking out to sea, the women on the rocks await the men’s return to safety.
To hearth and home, warm and comfy not lonely widows left alone.

Scanning the horizon watching and waiting to catch the first glimpse of the sails. Praying their men will return with lots of fish to tip the scales.

Everyone’s lives hanging by the thread those on land and those on  the seas each need the other alive not dead. Life was hard then, if the men failed to bring in the fish the family would perish.

The storms are coming in bringing fear in their wake . The women and the children strain to see if the the little fleet will safe harbour make. Prayers are offered up on the shore and on the boats for safe return and generous  hauls upon the boats.

The wind is strong it is blowing a gale the rain is lashing down but at last someone calls that they have seen a sail. Everyone runs down to the harbour to greet the fleet. All pray secretly that their man will be home safe , how they will hug them when they meet.
