- What Matters
I want to be a cool mom.
I want to be fun.
When I eventually have a child,
I want to be there no matter how wild.
I’ll always have a willing ear
To listen to their hopes and fears.
My kids can learn from my example
How to treat others and not to trample
The other kids’ feelings, fears, and failings
I know that I won’t have to be bailing
My kids out of jail,
Because under my guidance, they won’t fail.
Their lives will entwine with both friend and foes.
They must experience all the joy and woes.
I want to be cool. I want to be fun.
I want to be the one to whom my kids run.
When life hands them lemons, and things get crappy,
I want to be there to make them happy.
