It’s been a while, since I’ve been here,
I’ve had a change in my career.
Through the stress, I’ve kept my cool,
my son is starting, a different school.
Kids that bully, are cruel and mean,
a huge difference, in my son I’ve seen.
Quiet and withdrawn, in his room,
his smile has gone, replaced with gloom.
The bullies made us move away,
my son’s new school, will start Monday.
I hope a fresh start, will do him good,
I’d banish bullies, if I could.
It breaks my heart, to see him sad,
he’s such a loving, giving lad.
My other son, has moved back home,
hogging bathroom, food and phone.
My full time job and a house of seven,
is certainly not my idea of heaven.
My calender is full, everyday,
I’d like some ‘me time’ if I may?
My request unheard, I start the chores,
washing clothes and cleaning floors.
The doorbell rings, the phone does too,
my house is busier, than a zoo.
Friends staying over, and visitors here,
I long to have a day that’s clear.
My health has suffered, from the strain,
Especially, comfort eating, weight gain.
