Could it be?
Your life doesn’t offer you
A starring role.
Characters playing parts.
(Your influence unknowable)
Lives vying for the spotlight.
Then the climax.
Your name buried in the credits.
A mother’s journey complete…
Your story told
By twinkling stardust
In their eyes.

Thanks very much! ❤
I wonder who many who wishes to be a star only to find how awful it is to have their dreams fulfilled.
Becoming a mother fulfilled my dreams. I wonder the same thing about those who expect applause. Thank-you, Bjorn.
How perfect. As a mama with two grown (but not quite flown) younglings, this touches my heart.
❤ Many thanks to you who also knows the joy of motherhood.
Oh how absolutely lovely.
As a mother and grandmother, your take on the prompt resonates with me, Susan. Nicely done.
That warms me to my toes. Isn’t grandmother- hood also grand?! Many thanks!
Altruism in its purest form. Nicely done!
❤ The best comment in the fewest words. Thank-you!
You’re welcome ❤
This was beautiful. I am going to share it with my mother later, thank you for sharing!
❤ I'm honored and your Mom will be too! ❤
Twinkling starlit eyes…a perfect mother’s legacy. Beautiful work.
Thank-you! Your comment warmed my heart. ❤
I love that last stanza!
😊 I’m pleased my words resonated with you! Cheers!
I find this such an interesting poem. Well written.
I deeply appreciate your kind comment. 😊
Maybe not a starring role, not according to the marquee, but the show only goes on because of mothers. Very cool take on the prompt.
Absolutely! Unsung heroes. 😉
Thanks for reading and commenting!
loved the picture you used with this beautiful poem
It jumped out at me as a wonderful visual. Much appreciated!
Susan – this is SO true to life… and for some people it’s very hard to come to terms with!
Thank-you, David. I’m glad this spoke to you. ❤
This seems sad to me. I’d like my kids to shine, but I’m someone’s child too, so…
And there you shine! Does your value come from ‘credits’ or accomplishments? Once you become a mother, it’s not about you anymore. ❤ Thank-you for your thoughts!
Beautiful, and perfect as I’m reading it on the birthday of one of my children.
How nice! Thank-you. ❤👏
I love what you did with this one! Mothers are the unsung heroes of our time. They are often not recognized but change the world. They are the real stars!
Ka-boom! I appreciate your comment.
:>) You are most welcome!
