Shit Rolls Down Hill

I am a mother
Of four mini me’s
On most days I’m glad
They are quite interesting.

Today I was crippled
By actions one took
As she secretly cut herself
A page from my book

At first I was horrified
Saddened, then angry
How dare she insinuate
Her life is not gravy
I am the greatest
#1 mom…it’s true
How could she do this to me
Not a clue

Shit rolls down hill
That flashed through my mind
This illness she has
Started like mine.
I cut and I hated
I angered and hit
I screamed out for love
But hissed and continued

Shit rolls downhill
Like it always has
It’s time that I leveled
This playing field

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:)
