A Single Parents Some Days - Poem by Federico del Corazón

I do not know if you know this
but it has been tough for me too
I feel so lost and dishearten
as I smile when life goes by

It never ends

Routines are nice if every one plays along
What parent wants to constantly remind their children to focus?
And to please help out

They do not understand in a way that an adult would.
Their abilities are limited to what they comprehend
or how they can contribute.

I understand this and accept this

It’s my role to focus. To think ahead.
To start the day with a smile

They should enjoy life
Feel safe and loved
With no worries

I am exhausted by the time I go to bead
You would think I would sleep better drained and empty

Sleep sometimes never comes
Its dark and I’m alone

I’m left with my thoughts,
I try to read
I write what I feel
I write what I’m longing for

I cry out in a silent voice and beat my chest
I’m in so much pain

Writing is the only release I have

So much to think and worry about
I am running away in my mind
I tell my self 'breathe' It’s going to be ok

I close my eyes trying to feel a better life breathing on my face
But this book needs to be read one page at a time
No cheating or quick fix. Each word seems to last a lifetime.

I swallow but I have not eaten
I drink, but my thirst is never satisfied
My arms are empty But I carry a full load

It’s morning again The day has started

“Good morning angels” Kiss Kiss

    Truly a magnificent poem! We all fight battles at night. We may never win, but there's always a reason to keep on trying. And as long as there is a smile, kiss and love, there's still hope, yes? (Report) Reply
