I am your mama bear…
I am your mama bear. And you are my cub. Forever and ever I love you…
I will growl at the badness in the world, and keep you safe from harm… but I will not do everything for you or wrap you in cotton wool
I will feed your belly, but I will not make you endless snacks that lie half eaten.
I will snuggle you to sleep, but I will not lie like a sucker whilst you play for hours.
I will breastfeed you, but growl if you nip or tie me down all day.
I will teach you all I know, but I will not do your homework for you.
I will kiss your hurts but also let you feel your own pain.
I am a mama bear, and I have my own wildness. I must hunt and prowl myself. And you must too. We are wild ones you and I. Let us not domesticate each other. Do not tie me in bondage and I will let your heart roam free too.
