Busy Day Busy Life

Updated on October 1, 2015

What Is It Like...

All mothers know

How to go nonstop without rest

Getting things done

Then when you have time to spare

Doing all you can just to catch your breath

The single life

Paying bills and working two jobs

Trying to make ends meet


Studying to learn more

Taking huge student loans

Part time jobs and hopes

Single parents

Trying to get a fresh start

Dating again

Shuffling their hours at work

To spend time with their children

Husband and wife

Who work conflicting hours

Balancing their love life

Grand parents who have raised their own families

Helping out minding their children's children

Picking up the kids

Dropping off the kids

Minding the kids

Their never ending love

Through it all

We have a lot to think about

When the day is over

We all have done our best

Tomorrow will be here soon

So get some rest

      Busy days starting from the very early morning come to nap times in the afternoon just to get through the evening. Hope you and yours are having a sunny and colorful autumn weekend.

      MsDora The busier we are the less likely we are to get into trouble. Work sleep work. I have no time to be lazy or over eat. So my work ethics are good and I trim the fat. Burning off calories wherever I go. Thank you for reading and sharing my thoughts. Have a superb night.

      Akhila Saroha I am so happy to see your comments.Every day we all have things to do. Some easy some hard. In the end what really matters is what you accomplish that pleases you. For me it's pleasing other people as often as I can. If I can't do it in person maybe I can do it through thought. Writing poems that inspire and reveal our faults through humor and mistakes. Trying to connect on common interests like good health, work, family, love and passion. Thank you for your time and your lovely comments. Have a great day.

      Jodah I watched my mother growing up always busy with helping my brother and me getting off to school , fixing meals, chores, teacher meetings and taking care of us when we were sick. I remember my single life having my first apartment and paying bills and having a car. When in college all I had time for was school and working my first job. I see how divorced couples struggle with their children from their marriage and how they struggle to fall in love again. I watched my own parents mind their grandchildren whenever they could to help make life easier. Now as a husband I still experience how difficult and complicated it can get when my wife works different hours and we try to find a balance to live our professional life and make sure we have time for each other. Each of these times became phases of my own life and I wondered how we all get to experience life in our little way. I would love if you could see yourself in any one of these situations and hear your own experiences. Thank you for reading and sharing.

      well written. perhaps all age groups can easily relate it. I could also identify with the areas where I was able to relate to the situation expressed here
