Invisible-Visible Me

The thing that defines me and makes me whole,
My boys that I adore
I only wish I could be the mom they deserve
At this point in my life I hoped I would be a craftier, sillier, happier me
As I try to be perfect, all people see is exhausted invisible-visible me

Our love once sustained me but now I feel lost,
My partner and lover and friend
My greatest fear is letting you down
At this point in my life I wanted to be a sweeter, more thoughtful, and sexier me
As I go through each day, all people see is vulnerable invisible-visible me

I’m an observer, time’s passing me by,
I haven’t been there for you my friend
I miss the laughter we used to share
At this point in my life I am longing to be a more satisfied, joyful, thankful me
As I force a smile, all people see is lonely invisible-visible me

Every facet of me struggles - the mother, the wife, the friend
I’m a shell of the woman that I used to be
Now, invisible-visible me
