Dragged down by the turmoil of the day
Buried under a list of endless obligations
Squeezed in by deadlines that seem impossible to meet
Choked by noxious paperwork made possible by the local bureaucracy
Another meeting to attend, another survey to take
My mind is overwhelmed by the chaos of events
I rub my eyes
Too tired to speak
I fall asleep in my chair
My bed and dreams await me
My worries gone for the day
Tomorrow I will awaken in the morning mist
Sip my morning coffee
Lace up my shoes
And run my cares away

Why thank you Jenn! I was so tired when I wrote that! Now I am trying to wake up for the run…
Happy Wednesday! 🙂
This is totally me this year… My senior year of high school… College visits, applications, homework, tests… So glad this is all coming to an end when I can “run my cares away” 🙂 I hope you will have time to relax too and “awaken in the morning mist” “worries gone for the day”
I understand! For me, this time of year is especially busy because of my job (I am in education). Plus, home life is wonderfully full with a major home improvement project and a son graduating from college in 10 days. I have come to call the month of May “Mayhem”!
