The Gallery - Emotions

The subject for this weeks Gallery is emotions, now its a special Gallery this week as its teaming up with Sleep Is For The Weak Writing Workshop, which means only one post to do this week! 

Its a tough trying to put words and pictures together and me being a dumb blonde came up with a great idea then realised that the word I was thinking of wasn't actually an emotion so I'm kinda cheating!

I feel frustrated, sad, depressed, worried, despair, angry and miserable when I am tired. 

I feel happy, gleeful and loving when I am tired.

I'm quite often tired, almost everyday. 


Today I am tired,
I was tired yesterday,
And I will be tired tomorrow

Today I am a Mum,
I was a Mum yesterday,
And I will be a Mum tomorrow. 

That makes me happy,
And the tiredness slips away.

Don't forget to visit the Gallery on Wednesday to see everyone else's posts. 


  1. I really like this simple little poem. It says so much in so few words. Lovely xx

  2. What a beautiful photo. And the words are lovely too. It may technically be 'cheating' but every single mother who reads this will know exactly what you are going through. Well done!

  3. Such a heartfelt post. You have expressed exactly what motherhood can feel like!

  4. I don't think you've cheated at all. We can all relate to the sentiments in the poem - that weariness is part of the deal in being a mother!

  5. Great interpretation for emotion. I love the photo and the poem well done. x

  6. Great "cheat" and great post! Tiredness certainly impacts all feelings!

  7. This is very true, such tiredness but such joy!x

  8. Lovely post :)

  9. This is great, being tired affects me hugely too and I find it harder to stay on an even keel emotionally. Not a cheat at all:) Jen

  10. Simplicity at it's best! I know what you mean I am always tired too. I was tired before I had Burton and it just keeps spilling over day after day.
    Great honest poem and love your photo it sums up how many of us feel everyday :-)

  11. Great words....being a mummy is a great job! :0)

  12. This is why I love the blogging community - other people put wonderfully into words what life is like for so many. I love the simplicity of your poem, and the photo is great. Good luck with your cyber mummy reading - which one are you reading out? L xox
