Baby Steps, Lessons from my 5 Year Old, Poem

There’s magic in the eyes of my boy
His smile, his words, his laughter unspoiled
His eyes see the world in a different light
Where I may see darkness
He always sees light

On my darkest of days
We’ve all had a few
He’ll change my perspective
With one word or two

Mommy I need you
Can you hold my hand?
His words sometimes jumbled
But I understand!

Traces of him
Are implanted in me
Yet if I had one wish
I’d see what he sees

Special he has been
From his first tiny breath
His smiles, his first steps
His new robot dance

What happens to us
As we grow in our skin
Do we forget where we came from
And let chaos come in

Baby steps it will be
For me starting now
To undue the damage
This world has endowed.

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
