ADD TO MY FAVORITES
The can keeps calling me.
My brain tells me it’s not allowed
The will does not agree
I make it through the morning time
Training, teaching, toiling
When lunch comes round I sit to dine
My insides start to boiling.
To the fridge I go my choice to make
Deciding, deflecting, declaring
Water it is! I will not break
I turn away despairing
The kids are loud, the list is long
Caring, cuddling, cleaning
I’m tired now, my will is gone
Maybe I’ll have one this evening
The day is done, it’s time for me
Relaxing, reading, resting
As I sit, I no longer see
A reason for the testing
My husband asks if I want one
I quickly tell him yes
My will is now completely gone
I know I’ve failed the test
The first sip hits my throat and stings
I have no other care
My Mountain Dew is comforting
None other can compare
I tip the green can up and drink
Savoring every drop
My resolve is gone, I slowly sink
When will I ever stop?
