Stuck again

Some days just don't seem to make the cut
One step forwards
two steps back

First we say: why me?
We kick a bit
and scream
but not convincingly

We're calm
It just is what it is
Do what we have to do

Totally snowed in
we hunker down with an old book

Isn't that what i dreamed of anyway?
in those days
full of stress
looking after you

Today
we are in it together
hold each other up

Mom, I love you

Ohhh, I love you too

This is beautiful, Jozien. So tender and loving... and you have captured that silly frustration we feel when we're snowed in. Why not just enjoy ourselves? Thank you for reminding me!

I read the poem aloud to whoever was near me - and they all agreed with me!
