Limping Along

Yahoo Image Search

Up before dawn
Cooking lunches and breakfasts
For other stomachs
No shower
Until all others ready
Hurrying through the act
To rally all into the car
Errands and chores
Phone calls and texts
Regardless of health and energy
Getting slower
Brings criticism and trips
Yet there is no time to stop
Sacrifices to make up for loses
And praying
To get a weekend break
While knowing chances slim
Muster a smile for gatherings
Holding strong
As others take credit
And field the questions
Related to your hard work
Which begins anew
As Monday looms ahead

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. I hope things start to improve for you soon, and you get some rest before you end up even more unwell and drained than you already are.


  2. I love it when others step in to tell your story. Good poem. Now, I need to lay down.
