The “I Understand Now Mom” trend is inspired by a TikTok poem

As the title, “Somewhere Between Then and Now,” suggests, the poem was written by a daughter to her mother, with whom her relationship has developed beautifully over the years.

It’s common for teenagers to rebel against their mothers when they say well-intentioned words of wisdom. However, children will only realize the value when they face challenges as adults.

The poem shared by TikTok users seems more like an apology for past actions and decisions that may have harmed their mothers, as it speaks of the differences that the mother-daughter duo once shared.

The trend sparked by the viral poem has social media users posting throwback pictures with their mothers while “Somewhere Between Then and Now Mom” ​​is read in the background.

However, some users have dedicated the heartbreaking poem to their late mothers and are trying to relive the bittersweet memories.

Regardless of the reason, the poem has gained popularity as a form of expression and several mothers have used the platform to express their feelings after hearing the beautiful piece.

Somewhere between then and now, momma will tear you apart

The poem that TikTok users dedicated to their mothers is as follows:

“Somewhere between then and now,
It went from “Mom, stop telling me what to do.”
To “Mom, please tell me what to do.”

Somewhere between then and now,
It went from “Mom, you don’t understand.”
To “Mom, I don’t understand.”

Somewhere between then and now,
It went from, “Mom, stop asking so many questions.”
To “Mom, I have so many questions.”

Somewhere between then and now,
It went from “Mom, leave me alone.”
To “Mom, never leave me alone”

Somewhere between then and now I realized the other thing
Half of my heart has always been the person who created it
first of all. “

Users cry

The viral poem has emotionalized TikTok users by evoking memories of their own mothers. Some of them mourn the parents they lost and others mourn what they have left.

One wrote: “It’s only when we lose that person that we appreciate the little things.”

“This brought me to tears,” said another.

A third user shared, “I hate that we don’t realize the little things until we’re too late to be grateful for those very little things.”
