    sometimes the lady gets tired
    she nurtures all of the men in her life
    the high maintenance husband
    who's emotional ups and downs
    are like holding onto the guardrail
    of your most frightening ride

    who will he be today
    the angry investment banker
    the funny comedian who holds a drink
    the spiteful dictator who screams and shouts
    the provider who showers her with diamonds
    take your pick…roll your dice

    sometimes the lady gets tired
    she nurtures all of the men in her life
    the overly bright first grader
    the lazy and hilarious kindergartner
    she tries to teach them and protect them
    who will they be one day
    she refuses to let it be up to fate or
    take your pick…roll your dice

    because at work the vice president
    likes his fruit washed
    his messages neat, his calendar tight
    his meetings just "so"
    and if things aren't his way he lets her know
    day to day she shuts her eyes for a moment
    she looks up and continues

    and every day it's a little harder
    it all catches up to this lady sometimes
    a glass of wine turns into a bottle
    pain killers are kinda nice too, but is it her head
    or her heart that is hurting sometimes she can no longer
    tell the difference or the deference of which she is trying to fix
    but she knows for sure that she is tired

    the lady-

    Sistagirl, you did it again........................

    Remember we all get tired at times and just when we think we can't take another step-we take one and then another and another and so on.........until our journey is complete.

    Keep on keeping on.......................

    Sometimes we are on overload, and you posed this gently, yet potently. God is always there watching over us.
