Song that has a beautiful melody, but if you pay attention on lyrics it sends important message and supports single mothers!
I absolutely adore this song! I mean, i had liked it before i realized what it is about. But that time when i really heard the lyrics i cried very hard and i just couldn’t stop listening to it. The song won my heart immediately because i understand the struggle of a single mother.
I know i am only 17 years old, but i have grown up without my “father”, and i totally respect all single moms out there.
My parents divorced when i was 8 months old, and my mom had been going through very rough times back then. I was just a little baby and she had her own demons to fight. How the time was passing by, she got through it and became a wonderful mother to me. I was really happy kid with her, i didn’t need father because she was enough. Really important thing is that she had support from her parents the whole time, and she still does.
I am now straight A student, with good behavior and my own person with strong character, and she taught me all. I am a lot like her, we have the same eyes, face, we talk at the same way, use the same words – just very look alike. I am proud of that.
Her struggle through the years was the fact that i’m going to grow up without a “father”. And i told her once that it doesn’t really matter because i will rather live just with her than in the whole “family” who doesn’t do anything but arguing. And that is the most important thing.
MOTHERS, DO NOT FORCE YOUR FAMILY TO STAY TOGETHER IF YOUR HUSBAND IS NOT A GOOD FATHER OR A PERSON AT ALL. IT IS NOT WORTH IT, YOU’LL GET MUCH HAPPIER AND FULFILL OUT THAN IN A MARRIAGE FULL OF ARGUES. DON’T LET YOUR CHILD TO WATCH YOU SUFFER.
It’s hard for one single mother to raise a child all by her own. It takes guts to do that, really. There are money problems, problems with people – everyone is watching down on you because you don’t have a man by yourself, they tend to humiliate you and to consider you as object, and that’s not right because WOMEN ARE NOT SEXUAL OBJECTS and i cannot believe that we need Women’s March to prove that.
One thing that is not clear for me is why people think that woman without a man is not capable of doing anything? Excuse me, but HOW? I have a real example right by my side. My mother IS CAPABLE of doing anything, and i’m glad that she learned me to be like that too.
The song Rockabye is about mother who works as a stripper just to raise her kid how it’s right. It shows the struggle of all the single mothers who are ready to do anything for their child – that’s the part where i found my mother. I was watching her fight for me this 17 years, and my father wasn’t there for us at all. She was going through thick and thin and i will help her from now on. I am big girl now, i have grown up a lot, and i will do anything to make her happy just like she made me all this years.
