I Wish I’d Had the Courage (#poetry)

When I see single moms
I wish I’d had the courage
But life was different when I was young
I wish I’d had the courage
I wish I’d had the courage

To just say yes
Grab some happiness
Turn my back on those
Who would judge what I chose
Stand up, be strong
Not feel that I was wrong
I wish I’d had the courage

I look at whole families
And see what I couldn’t give you
What I couldn’t have for myself
I question all the questions
And answer all the answers
With doubt and fear and loneliness
Not knowing how to ask for help

When I see single moms
I wish I’d had the courage
But life was different when I was young
I wish I’d had the courage
I wish I’d had the courage
