HAWMC Day 6: Health Haiku

Health haiku. Write a haiku about your health focus. 5 syllables/7 syllables/5 syllables. Write as many as you like.

Birth was not happy
I thought it would get better
That did not happen.

Motherhood was pain
Always felt so dull and sad
Nothing but alone.

I wanted to feel
To be happy to be mom
Instead I felt cold.

Sitting there with her
Looking at my baby girl
I cried, felt failure.

Sad, dull, flat, bored, lost,
Not the things I expected
Not what I wanted.

More than a bad mood,
Not something I could just kick,
Not a lack of faith.

Finally found hope
Finally out of the fog
PPD is gone.

Do you have a health haiku you'd be willing to share with us?
