A Poem

Photo by Shari Sirotnak on Unsplash

I wake up in the morning not eating a descent meal.

Partly my doing.

I crave so much. I hate not being able to afford what I desire most.

For a descent amount of groceries it's so much.

Struggling so much. Pinching pennies.

You know what I mean.

Earning money to pay for bills and food it's a lot to handle.

How do we handle what we need most?

We attempt to survive.

I learned something tight budgets are important.

Providing for myself and my husband.

A family strong, but would be stronger with the strength of food.

Please leave us a tip, or pledge. I would much be grateful for this.

    I am not working right now in order to care for my mom. The two of us live on her social security and we are making it. As Babs said, "Choices, some are easier than others." That is how we lived in making priorities of what is important and what we don't need. Of anyone I should be the one who is struggling financially - but I'm not because of prioritization and making the tough choices.
