Family – my pleasure

I’m trapped,

in marriage and in motherhood.

No way to escape,

lest I’ll be chastised and misunderstood.


Don’t they know,

the job is never-ending.

Day by day,

the errands seem to be mounting.


24 hours daily,

the routine is all the same.

Work and work,

But I never made it to the hall of fame.


Every single day,

No time to relax or go for vacation.

All they want to see,

are hot meals and lots of adulation


Oh! Goodness me,

I’m physically and psychologically fatigue.

So much so that

I’m ready to pack up and leave the league.


But wait!

Something is always stopping me.

Oh my!

It’s the love I have for my family.
