Why I Face the Void

It is not writer’s block for me,

Which makes it difficult to write.

It’s the fact that I have children.

They are almost never quiet.

 

When it’s so noisy in the house,

It’s very hard to concentrate.

I can’t focus my attention.

They are almost never quiet.

 

I sometimes wake at 2 AM,

For time alone with my own thoughts.

This is the cost of motherhood.

They are almost never quiet.

 

The problem is, when quiet comes,

I become suspicious of that.

I worry what is happening.

They are almost never quiet.

 

They are loud and messy, it’s true.

The truth is though, I don’t mind it,

‘Cause it means I get to have them.

They are almost never quiet.

 

I’ll take the noise, the sticky floors,

No solitude or privacy.

Later, my void will disappear.

They are almost never quiet.
