I am sick

By Jazmin FernandezPublished 8 months ago 1 min read
Thanks to Lexica Aperture v2

I can not take it any longer;

my head is worn out,

my heart hurts, and

I am sick of budgeting.

The spreadsheets, the figures,

and the never-ending math

is all too much for me,

and I need to change course.

I make an effort to plan ahead

and save money, yet

it feels like I am stuck in quicksand.

I feel like I have nothing to show

for it while the bills

and expenses keep piling up.

The objective of this grind

is to create a brighter future

and put my anxieties behind me,

I tell myself.

It is not enjoyable or easy,

but with perseverance and


I can finish it.

I then take a big breath and restart,

this time with greater zeal

and renewed resolve.

To manage my money well,

to live within my means,

to accomplish my objectives,

and to realize my aspirations.

Even though it can be difficult

and exhausting,

I have faith that it will be

sufficient in the end.

to live a rich,

authentic life

and to be joyful in whatever I do.

Thanks for reading.

    I didn't think budgeting could be a theme for a poem, I'm very impressed with your work! I also try to budget, but I'm not very good with spreadsheets and sometimes I forget to write down my expenses, in fact it's a nightmare, but necessary!

  • Sending you lots of love and hugs, Jazmin! ❤️

    Your efforts today will pay off in the future. I've worked two jobs my entire life and up until this year. Now at 73, I've cut back to one. It's impossible to live on social security alone. Your post should be a wake up call for everyone to keep plugging at it.

    Ah the song of the mass of humanity. Money worries and living within one's means. I am a cheapskate, dollar store and thrift shops. Be surprised how much you can save my shopping smart. You can score brand new furniture and brand new name brand stuff for pennies. I reserve big spending for special occasions only. Some people only buy at brand name stores. It is a matter of choice. Good luck.
