Today was a Lemon


Today was a Lemon

I was given a lemon today
So it seems
All that surround me make my face squint and squeeze
Their words are demeaning
Their gazes not caring
I don’t even want to see
What they are wearing

Some days I can say
All the right things
It’s true
And other days, I get
The “why, what’s and who’s”

On days of the latter
I pick a nice space
I crawl in with Iphone, some books and rice cakes
I hide from the dwellers
That target their mom
For everything under the sun going wrong

This too shall pass
I know this to be true
So I’ll take that fat lemon
Add some sugar
And Snooze

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, 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:)
