I’ve just written this not-entirely-serious poem which is borne of the frustration I feel over not having enough time! It’s really not a finished piece but frankly, if I try and perfect it then I won’t have time for the other things I want to do today!
I fantasise about a way
that I could alter time
to slow hours down or speed them up
and hurry through when times were tough
to dawdle on a summers day
make sure there’s always time to play
convert a blink of sleep to minutes
give creativity no limits
make arguments brief and cuddles long
move swiftly when I get things wrong
and never need to wait again
or have to linger when in pain
and always have the time to do
everything that I want to
Yes, the whole world could be mine
if I had power over time.
If anyone out there has any tips on how to juggle kids and work and family life and everything else then feel free to share!
And a particular question to anyone who writes and blogs – how do you have time for both? I’m sort of, kind of trying to write a book but, well, I never seem to be able to find the time!
I’m linking this up with the very fabulous Prose for Thought over at Verily Victoria Vocalises.
