In Motherhood

The first is overwhelming
crying, bewildering,
all at once the definition of love.
She frustrates;
bursts your heart wide open.

The second seems manageable
crying, consolable
all at once your love multiplies.
He frustrates;
expands your heart.

The third seems easy
crying, seldom;
all at once you notice your heart
has learned to parent
even as the child frustrates.
