I'm sorry I was weepy, after giving birth,

 

I'm sorry I didn't feel like the superwoman of this earth.

 

I'm sorry I didn't count the seconds down to the time of every feed.

 

I'm sorry for the unpurchased pregnancy books, to which I took no heed,

 

I'm sorry I left it six weeks to have some me time,

 

I'm sorry I didn't leave it longer, how selfish was I?

 

I'm sorry the dishes lay unwashed as the bottles fill the sink,

 

I'm sorry for not keeping up, while being so sleepy I can't think,

 

I'm sorry for taking my baby outside at two days old on a crisp October day,

 

I'm sorry I never layered her in the heaviest cotton wool if they knew, what would they say?

 

I'm sorry I weaned as early as told, to meet my baby's appetite,

 

I'm sorry I gave her foil packed purees, would I ever get it right?

 

I'm sorry I never breastfed because I didn't want to, 

 

I suppose when you have to care for your mental health, you only have you,

 

I'm sorry that there are just some days I don't want to leave the house, 

 

I'm sorry there are some days, that all I want is out,

 

I'm sorry for letting my girl, tantrum in public view,

 

I'm sorry that I realise, that she's a person too,

 

I'm sorry that there are some times when fish fingers and beans are part of today's diet,

 

I'm sorry we give some things, just for a bit of quiet,

 

I'm sorry that my girl is full of confidence and might,

 

I'm sorry that I will never want to put out that light,

 

I'm sorry that I respond when my baby wants me close,

 

I'm sorry that sharing a bed is a regular dose,

 

I'm sorry that there are certain times I fret and some I do not worry,

 

Basically what I'm saying is, I'm sorry I'm not sorry.
