Some People

Some people appear to accomplish so much,
You wonder just how they can do it.
Whenever an obstacle gets in their way,
They manage to barrel right through it.

They honor commitments, go out on a limb
And even push on when they’re sick.
They manage to finish so much in one day,
You’d love to know what makes them tick.

They nurture their families, check in with friends;
See doctors, pay bills, go to work.
No matter what problems are waiting to pounce,
There isn’t a challenge they’ll shirk.

Such people inspire both envy and awe;
They live on a parallel plane
Which, even if most of us try to approach,
We’ll find our attempts are in vain.

    Appear is an interesting word. :)

    That's a good one, for sure. Those people do drive me crazy...if I could nap after every meal, I might be able to keep up.

    Great write, my usual! :) This surely doesn't describe me! I stand in awe of such people as well...however, sometimes I wonder if they are letting something slip...perhaps the nearest and dearest? HUGS!
