My Me Time :: A Poem

Inspired by my day-to-day chaotic life :) Aug11



All day long the dishwasher runs...

...the washing machine runs...

...the tap runs...

...the toddlers run...

...to keep me going faster...

...and faster...and faster...and faster!

Ahhh! ...and my me time!


The hands are dry

...with the rinsing

...the washing...

...the cleaning...

...and the cleaning

...the cleaning

...and the oh ho ho

Ahhh! and my me time!


My hairs unkempt

...a button's got off

...'em slippers hurt

...the telly's so loud!

...'n the demands just rising!

'n Ahhh! and my me time!


The table is set

...my appetites' gone

...the cleaning is there

...and back is worn

...by the by...did you notice...

...Ahh! just no me time!!


A lovely view

...from the windows so tall

...a syscraper I live in

...with luxuries and all

...my family's the best

...and my kids growing so tall

...no, not complaining

...my life's really good

but ahhh...just no me time!!!

Oh how i related to this once upon a time, with six children . Mind you I have ten grandchildren now, but that is a little different.

I vote this one up and now look forward to following you on here.

Take care

Eiddwen.

....well I always have time for this kind of writing - you are special and it shows in every word you write - so very charming and warm and witty - it would take most people a lifetime or two to compose what you seem to do so effortlessly and naturally - please write more ....

Thank you eiddwen for sharing your own experience. Its very difficult to find me time still as kids happen to be our first responsibility! Im not sure what i will do when they leave the nest... I will have to find myself something to take care of!

Until then, im enjoying every minute :)
