Close the curtains to shut out the light.
Close your eyes to create endless night.
Shut your ears to every sound.
Shut your mind and go to ground.
That is today. That’s how I feel.
I’m a hamster in an endless wheel.
Feel like I can’t keep going. But I’ve got to.
My two sweet children need me to.
Baby needs feeding, toddler entertaining.
My body’s moving but my emotions are failing.
It’s just a motion, something I must do.
To see this God-awful day right through.
I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.
But I don’t know what else to do.
