    I feel like that rabbit
    NO TIME NO TIME
    No time for you to be you
    Me to be me
    See the way I see
    Ya'll need to give me
    Bout 5 mo hours
    Stop trippin' don't be no coward
    24 just ain't enough
    For me to accomplish all this stuff
    3 hours for sleep at home
    1.5 hours w/kids, 30 minutes alone
    1.5 gone between sleep and half waken slumber
    Another hour and its half slips just as you say its number
    3 hours to cook and eat and clean
    1 hour just to look for my keys
    An hour to drop the kids at day care
    Dayum, did I do my hair?
    8 hours spent with people I don't like
    3 hours traveling, well traffic jamming(Ineedabike)
    Okay now see, my whole day has been spent
    I am trying to figure out where the time went
    Time with my kids just seem to have sunk
    2.5 years and 2.5 months
    I know that's what they made vacations for
    But who will my kids get to know more?
    I only baby sit them and teach them what I can
    But time just doesn't understand
    Five mo hours thats what I need
    Five mo hours....to spend on sleep.

    Great poem. Although I'm not a mum myself, I know how hard it can be to juggle all the things in life and this piece captures that perfectly.
