INSIDE A STEPMOTHERS HEART AND MIND

 

AT A YOUNG AGE OF 17 MY WHOLE WORLD CHANGED

I FELL IN LOVE WITH AN OLDER MAN WITHOUT A PENNY TO HIS NAME,

THIS MAN HAD WHAT SOME WOULD CALL "BAGGAGE" IN THE FORM OF 2 BEAUTIFUL KIDS

FROM THE MOMENT THAT I MET THEM MY HEART THEY HELD IN THEIR HANDS,

A BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL NOT QUITE A YEAR AND A HANDSOME BOY OF BARELY 4

SO WELL BEHAVED AND PLAYFUL WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE?

IT WAS NOT LONG AFTER I MET THEIR DAD I TOO WAS EXPECTING

A LITTLE BOY TO BRING THE NEXT ADDITION TO THE FAMILY,

TO A FAMILY I WAS NOT SURE I WAS QUITE READY FOR

BUT EVERYDAY I SPENT WITH THEM  LOVE GREW A LITTLE MORE,

THEIR DAD AND I HAPPILY WED AFTER THE BIRTH OF OUR FIRST

AND WE WERE PROUD TO HAVE THE MOST HANDSOME RING BEARER AND BEAUTIFUL FLOWER GIRL,

WE ADDED ONE MORE SON A COUPLE YEARS LATER TO COMPLETE THE GROWING FAMILY

AT 21 A STEPMOTHER TO 2 AND A MOM TO 2 DEFINITELY WAS PLENTY,

IN ALL THE YEARS OF WATCHING THE CHILDREN GROW NEVER DID I THINK

THAT THEY WOULD EVER GROW TO HATE ME AS IF I JUST WALKED IN THIS PLACE,

I WILL NEVER LET MY STEPCHILDREN SEE HOW MUCH HURT I HAVE INSIDE

THEY HAVE ENOUGH BURDENS TO LAST THEM ALL THEIR LIVES,

I TRIED SO HARD TO BE SOMEONE THAT THEY WOULD LOOK AT AND SAY

I KNOW THIS WOMAN LOVES ME EVERY SINGLE DAY,

 NOT MY BIOLOGICAL CHILDREN BUT IN MY HEART THEY ALWAYS WILL BE

THE SWEETEST LITTLE CHILDREN I MET THAT FATEFUL DAY.
