luckier than

I have been lucky,
luckier than
and I’m grateful for
but it wasn’t the plan
it should have been harder
I should have been smarter
there should have been chaos
there should have been sweat
it should have been brutal
if I’m being truthful
and that’s the part
that I don’t get
there should have been
struggle, a challenge,
a climb
that brought me
to my knees
but that sweet girl
& boy of mine
made motherhood
a breeze
