Reaching My Limit

Updated on March 20, 2017
Source

I do so much for you but it's never enough.

I have no life left, no life of my own;

When I'm not there with you helping you, talking to you, shopping for you, planning for you,

making arrangements for you, catering to your every whim,

I am worrying about you, wondering when the phone will next ring,

And you'll tell me that you need me, that you're desperate

That I must come round now.


My life is dedicated to you but not through choice.

I am your daughter so it is my duty.

There is no-one else so it has to be me.

I'm not a willing helper.

A terrible daughter.

Who wants my own life with my own family, but they shouldn't come first.

My duty is to you.

I should be a daughter first, a wife and mother is less worthy.

You tell me this, so it must be true.

      Thank you Michael. That is a good question, and one to always consider.

      Hi James, thanks for your comment and your wishes, yes I do remember you! I haven't been on here for a while either, it's nice to hear from you.

      I wrote this a while ago, but didn't know whether I wanted to publish it. It was a very difficult situation, in which I know lots of people find themselves. I won't go into detail, but now things have settled down a bit so I decided that it might help me and other people to put it out there.

      That's quite a meaningful poem, Moon Daisy.'

      I can only wish you well.

      I haven't been to HubPages lately. You might remember me as Subron7. (I do remember you.)
