Note to Self

Cupboards bare with a child to feed
Writer’s block not producing a penny
Bipolar rampant, puberty striking too
A house of hormones and moods, stress aplenty

Bills are due, groceries are needed
Dental work, mental work, guitar and the car
Therapy, play dates, sleep over’s, appointments
A nap always needed, yet ever so far

Homework, housework, yard work, no work
Play gets mixed in to make things fun
Day time, night time, noon time, all times
Having to be on from dawn to setting sun

My time is her time, what’s mine is hers
I gladly gave my life to let my daughter grow
Still, I do need to learn to allow for myself
For if I do not take care of me I will blow

    If this isn't fictional, there is a lot of honesty about yourself in this poem. It can be really hard wanting to give everything to your child, especially since there is a fine line to walk along; when you have to care for yourself to be able to really give so much to someone else. Chris.
