The day I got my first baby doll I knew.

There was something I was meant to do.

Someone I was meant to be.

Someone more than just Amberly.

I was to be a Mom and wife.

I never imagined a different life.

At seventeen I found out.

This was to never come about.

The doctor told me so matter of factly.

I would never be a mommy.

Years have gone by.

I still question why.

Yet my biological clock is yelling.

My belly should be swelling.

Many have their say.

“Miracles happen every day.”

“It can happen for you.”

Yeah. That one is new.

“In Vitro is the way to go.”

As if I didn’t know.

“Why don’t you adopt?”

Like Inever gave that a thought.

“You can have one of mine.”

Sure. Sign on the dotted line.  

“It’s God's plan.”

Can I hit you with a frying pan?

Others assume they know.

I don’t want that pregnancy glow.

“You have so much free time.”

If only I had a dime…

“I wish I could sleep all night.”

I’d rather have your plight.

“It’s so rewarding.”

Put that on a recording.

It is insane,

to try and explain the pain.

Learning to be just me. 

Instead of Mommy.
