Out of Excuses, Poetry


I’m out of excuses today
So it seems
I’ve laid and I’ve sniffled
But today I can clean

Today I’ll be mother
That just has to be
The floor is all crunchy
The sinks full of muck.
I have to get cleaning
Or my day will just s…

Some days I wear more hats than one
That I choose.
I wear hat musician, hat eBay
Some new.

I am lucky, they say
I have so many talents
But how do I pick one
So I can be balanced.

I guess I just have to see
How I feel in the morn
And choose my day hat
Based on the looks or the scorn.

Well I am so lucky
And I am so good
That balance is something I do
As I should.

So all of you women
Who walk in my shoes,
Don’t worry so much
Just choose, choose, choose, choose.

Back to my chores,
Or my singing, crochet.
I’ll think of another excuse
That I may!

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website, www.write2survive.com, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
