Problems on a Tree

If problems were like twigs on a tree
A gust of wind blowing them in the breeze

They would fall to the ground one by one
Family and friends would help and gather around

But that is not how it happens as life surrounds
Sometimes the twigs just keep falling down

Family and friends start to leave
And you are left with one big heap

Heavy on your shoulders they do weigh
More falling day by day

Realizing it is just too much to bear
Frankly, feeling this is quite unfair

So, deciding you cannot solve them all
Put those in a pile and call U-Haul.

    hahaha, this is SO true, I have a few friends and my sisters whom I believe have grown so sick and tired of me talking of my sore shoulder and other things, and my hubbie always losing his jobs and now looking again for work!! WHere is the UHAUL guy I need him desperately.
