I’m sharing my new poem, which I wrote last night, quite late, as I felt the words in me & I had to write them down right away. The stressful situation at home with everyone in the family – quite swamped.
The level of stress is too high
It doesn’t take a lot before everyone gets emotional & then the cry
I see it every day how they react & act
It doesn’t take a whole lot to see them & myself crumble like a house of domino set
A small discomfort in him & he looses his cool
The whole house upside down the next moment coz he feels the world has turned against him & is so cruel
Now this other one is very sensitive & stressed out in his own way
He cries quite often these days & he keeps opposing me whatever I do or say
She’s trying her best to take the burden on her shoulders
But the threshold is crazy high, so she starts slowly to smoulder
She’s the other pillar of this beautiful home
She needs me coz it’s almost impossible to bear everything on her own
I know if I fall apart once again
This sacred house will shatter into pieces, end of the game
But no matter what, I give my words, I won’t give up
They’ve gone through a lot, it’s time to hit the switch, to brighten up
They need space, kisses & hugs from time to time
I’m here for them, it’s the end of this soulful ryhme
