Hectic home.

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Quiet and withdrawn, in his room,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.

  1. I am glad to know your alright and that you have started your new job. I wish I could send you some me time, but at least you are surrounded by people who want you around, drive you crazy yes, but you matter to them, cherished it because it could be gone in the snap of a finger. ♡

      1. I understand firsthand what it’s like to be bullied and it does warm my heart to see that you, as a mother, are taking action to make sure your son is safe and healthy. You are making his world so much better simply by understanding what he is going through and being there for him 🙂
        BTW, love how you updated us with a poem!
