Every Now And Then - Poem by Adrienne Clark Strachn

Every Now and Then
I need alittle space
time to be me
time to be free
forget all those things, that restrict me
things that label me.
Every Now and Then,
I need alittle space
everyone got something for me to do
something for me to think about
time schedules, places to go
l'm like a taxi driver, a receptionist
a full calender
Every Now and Then,
I need to release some stress
go into a fantasy world
make myself happy
pretend to be a child awhile
Every now and Then
I need a holiday, a vacation
days off,
a day to do nothing, stay in my bed. Cover my head
someone to serve me
eat chips and dip
drink soda, kool-aid
maybe drink a glass of wine
Every now and Then,
I need some Good Ole Religion
that moaning kind.
the kind that is good for the soul.
make you wanna get on your knees
think about if you doing right.
If you; d get to heaven
need some Chicken Soup for the Soul.
Today, will be one of those days
Every now and Then
you have to reflex, look back and say
'Thank you, to whatever it is
you need to do '
Every Now and Then'

    Wowowee! Great context and writing. Everyone needs 'every now and then'. I especially love the line 'things that label me'. (Report)Reply

    i know that feeling. I've had days like that where all you can do is heave a heavy sigh.
