“Am In Control?” – A Poem

3 Comments

Parkinson’s Awareness Week

(Some of the following is an exaggeration for poetic effect.)

The kids are off school,
Running riot through the house.
Am I in control?
Not really, no.

I’ve spent too much money;
My credit’s all gone.
Am I in control?
Not really, no.

The laundry’s piled high,
And the hoover’s hard to find.
Am I in control?
Not really, no.

I’m stiff and I’m tired,
And my left hand won’t work.
Am I in control?
Not really, no.

My toes curl themselves
So it’s difficult to walk.
Am I in control?
Not really, no.

But paint on the canvas
Goes smooth and as planned.
Am I in control?
Indubitably, yes.

  1. And so therefore, you are in control because you have your art, your voice and your priorities sorted. And, ahem, unless you have staff, most everyone struggles with the housey things and children. Good poem xxxx
