THE JUGGLER


Like the stack

of badly-piled dishes

on the sink,

one more thing

would topple me

onto the floor, to sink down

and cry, hot bitter tears

of pure frustration.


One more thing to deal with,

one more job not done

would be the last,

fragile straw,

on an already

overwhelming day,

when everything needs

to be done – right now.


I love my life,

but days like this make me

want to scream,

and run away,

to say ‘I can’t do this’,

to let the juggling balls

drop, and crash uncaught,

to the ground.


But as always, I cope,

jobs worked through

eventually,

even time for a cup of tea.

Another day survived,

its chaos slightly ordered,

and I even find the energy

to smile.
