I want a child

I want a child
One day, I want to be a mom like my mom
 
One day, I want to be a dad like my dad
 
I know raising a child is challenging
But thats ok
 
I might have less free time
But thats ok
 
Child might born with a disability
If that happens, am I able to say “thats ok”
 
As a parent, I might go through many burden
I might experience many difficulties that others will not understand
 
I might apologize more than typical people would do
 
But I truly hope that people around me will feel thankful
 
I hope for a society that will give my child a role
 
 
I want a child
No matter what happens
 
I want a child
No matter what kind of feelings I fall into
 
What my child can do
The happiness that my child feels
I wish that more of these will come
 
Before I think about having a child
My heart is about to break, even now
