Such A Journey - Poem by Barbara Haskell

My life's been such a journey,
I've had some high's,
but Lord Almighty,
they're out-weighed by many low's.
I feel weighed down some
by money problems,
but really, what gets to me,
is the pain encircling my body,
around and 'round and 'round.
I've forced myself
to maintain some interest,
show enthusiasm, show some zest,
but what I really want to do,
is lay this body down
for a long and lovely rest.
