I’m normal ― I yell, I shout, I stress,
I’m often angrier than I look, I overthink,
I worry too much, and I might
even be a miserable case.
I’ll admit I need a break but, honestly, I need
a vacation one day off is never enough time
to breathe, to clear my mind, to read a book,
a break to sleep into tomorrow, there’s always
a loose end, always something to get done
…laundry, folding clothes, cleaning, there’s just
one me, one parent to go around for two.
Still, I make it work; I don’t have a choice
two little ones depend on me, and I depend
on God to pull me to my feet, I don’t have
any excuses not to make it.
