Working Mother

The day begins with shouts and screams
children needing to be fed and cleaned
The night passed away so fast
Feelings of rest just don’t last

Offspring now are off to learn
Spouse departs under pressure to earn
Alone in the house with her thoughts
Dreading the future demands of her boss

Dressed, pressed, and neatly groomed
Off to work fighting against inner gloom
Visions of a future where labors cease
Bring comfort to the present times of no relief

A woman worn, weathered, and watchful
Holding the family together against the doubtful
A precious jewel above all others
Bow in reverence to the working mother.

Inspiration: Poem demonstrating the life of a working mother. Today’s working mother is what I call today’s The Modern Virtuous Woman. Based upon Proverbs 31:10 – “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies..”
