Busy Mom

I wrote this in 1994 on a scrap of paper from the office where I was working part time. Life with husband, six kids and a part time job was a lot to handle at the time, especially since I was driving the kids to school (13 miles each way) and picking them up. The five students were 13, 11, 9, 9, and 7.5 and the youngest was 2 and a half. After two more years of this I quit the part time job and it was the best decision ever.

Busy Mom

By Sharon L. Bratcher

Busy schedule, like a race

Never home, but on the chase

Moving, moving constantly

Mega output energy.

Buildings, smog and dirty slush

Pass them, always in a rush

Most of life is have-to-dos

Do them all, don’t miss your cues.

Oh, to sit awhile and sit

Real still, no guilt, a real long sit.

Just start around and smell the air

And mostly, not go anywhere.

A respote from our daily grind–

If on our journey this we find.

I’d like to watch the flowers grow,

My children running to and fro.
