I am a mother with ADHD
Overly permissive or too severe
I can never find what is in between
Routine I can never seem to adhere

Confusion is our normal way of life
The children never know what to expect
Why can I not be a more normal wife?
Maybe then everything could be perfect

But perfect is simply a fairy tale
This is something I easily forget
And yet I keep seeking this holy grail
This journey always causes me to sweat

I am trying to find a good middle
Finding it, though, is such a hard riddle
