No Shame

I may seem lazy, I may seem lame
I surely have myself to blame.

My past life a constant struggle
I shy away in my own bubble.

I don't do what others say
I might lay around and waste my day.

No matter what you think that means
We all have our own dreams.

I've entered through another door
but I remember how it was before.

Life had me in a busy bustle
kids, work, home my constant hustle.

Now as my body breaks and ages
I'm moving ahead in life's stages

My best is done, my kids have grown
Now I live here all alone.

I wonder if you may have guessed
I'm living life in an empty nest.

I find I have all that I need
I want nothing out of greed.

Constant hustle is over rated
Now love from family keeps me sated.
So...
I may seem lazy, I may seem lame
But you see, I feel no shame.

This was wonderful Lenna and such a telling piece. I love the message here in your fantastic rhyming poem. Just be yourself...lazy is ok with me. :)

I realized after I wrote it that many people won't understand the meaning. It came from thoughts on a young person being judgmental about the lives of others without really knowing them. I feel that when you have busted your butt as a young person and lazy was never an option then, you have earned the right to be "lazy" when you get older. Thank You for your kind words Chris, I am happy you get it. Have a beautiful day !!!
