Birth Control

For Mother’s Day

I received 6 months

Of birth control.

Today would be

My father’s 63rd

Birthday.

I couldn’t imagine

Birthing a child,

Raising a child,

Loving a child–

Making a child happy,

Healthy, heroic.

So I popped for pills

On Mother’s Day,

One the next.

Repeat

Repeat

Repeat

Repeat

Repeat…

Retreat.

  1. I agree. When I was young, I wanted no kids and be dead before I turn 39 years old. I had four children and I have three grandchildren. I am 60 years old and I know. Each of us are teachers. Today, I told death, not today. People need me alive and well. Need you too dear Danielle.
