Not Wonderwoman

The world will not end if we put up our feet,

For 20 minutes each day.

The world will not end if we eat left overs,

More than once in a way.

The world will not end if we go meet our friends,

And we’re not there to serve you your lunch.

It’s these breaks we take and the time we make,

That help us get time before it’s too late.

Cos often,

We don’t get house help that works independently,

Or good carer’s when someone is ill.

We always need to keep an eye,

And there’s never a day that passes by,

When we can sit and take time with our cup of chai.

We’d like to blame you but you’re not the problem,

The problems lies within.

It’s a fight with ourselves, to let go and accept,

That we’re not . . . Wonderwoman.
