In response to Keith’s Ramblings 100 Word Friday Fictioneers – Word prompt SORRY
I’m sorry I’m not the mother you wished for, not the mother you thought I should be, not the mother you thought I ought to be.
I am sorry that you look at me with disdain, disregarding my pain as if a made-up notion of a lonely, depressed woman seeking attention, any kind of attention be it negative or not, your words not mine.
I’m not sorry I bore you. I’m not sorry you were gifted to me to love and cherish. I’m not sorry that you are my children. I’m sorry I’m not sorry for being your mom.
