A Little Piece of Me

I want and need my quiet time to think and write and be.

A tiny place in the world where I alone am enough and have time wonder, rest and see.

With a few moments to breathe and take care of myself because I am more fragile than I seem.

I worry too much about how I’m seen and what you think and if I came across as mean.

I have never felt I was good enough, even if I appear strong and smart and tough.

I don’t have children and never shall, but I do love kids and your will do nicely if I ever need a pal.

To those I love and those I’m with, I care and give and empathize.

My expectations are so high, it’s no wonder my disappointments are piled to the sky.

A little piece of me is all that’s left, so leave me be, that’s all you get.
