Faulty

I asked my children their thoughts of me
Speak! Honestly!

You are strange 
and don't behave as a mother should
Your ability to nurture is … ungood
Left to our own devices
Making no … sacrifices

Did I renege 
on parental responsibility
or planted expectations
of what a mother should be

I struggle to reconcile how my children see me, vs how I see myself, as a parent.
