Life's Demands

The Emotional and Physical Load

Daily reminders everywhere, a post-it here an alarm blaring there.

Is what I need to keep it all moving, every appointment, every meeting.

Sometimes I wish I did not feel so alone.

Three children, two dogs, and a husband. still I do it all.

Regret fills me when I get frustrated as my mind is stretched.

Attempts at getting help are met with nothing but excuses.

Cannot stay focused as other tasks are constantly swirling in my mind.

Tension and resentment build as I long for that help to arrive.

I need a moment of peace, I need someone to step up.

Only when I am at my weakest and demand help do I get it.

Now they think I am aggressive and bossy as I cannot keep going like this.
