I started writing this poem about a week ago, can’t believe it took so long. Much more difficult than writing a text. Hats off to all my poet-blogger-friends!
Once in a while
After all your jobs are done,
Could you please put the world
I don’t know how to say this
I am trying not to groan,
But just to put it simply
I am suffering from ‘My Time Deficiency Syndrome!’
I plan my week in advance
I work hard day and night,
To finish off my to-do lists
Hoping tomorrow would be ‘light’
‘Light’ enough to just sit down
I am not asking for a nap,
Its nice to call up friends sometimes
Or just chat on my WhatsApp.
Pedicures and manicures are nice to do
I like to spend time on how I look,
But the very first minute that I get free
I want to log on to Facebook.
I don’t want to do the dishes today
I don’t want to clean the sink,
I don’t want to iron that huge pile of clothes
I just want to sit down and think.
Think of what to write about
Something special for my blog,
It could be funny, it could be sweet
Maybe something that leaves my readers agog.
I don’t want to make fresh soup today
A can would do just fine,
I don’t want to run for activities
All I want is some free time.
They say I should hire a helper
But of what use is that I say,
I love my life the way it is
I only need a change today
Today, today, just for today!
