Inside out and back again:


They twist and they pull
This way and that
Until nothing is right
Or in the same place
I am inside out
Trying to escape

Breaks are not long enough
Sleep does not come
Alarm clock sounds
Earlier each day

Deep breath
Inhale

Exhale

Keep plugging along
Soon it will be done

They congratulate
They cheer
The grass is greener
On the other side
I am back again

  1. Sounds like you have had quite a February so far! Sometimes things just move along too fast to catch your breath, but it is so much better if you can slow yourself enough to breath before racing off again!

  2. The school year is almost over!! Keep going strong and it will be here before you know it, then you can enjoy summer to the fullest.

  3. I feel your pain heather! What a term. But, think about all that we are learning and all that we are heading towards =) Things have been so overwhelming and I think that this reminder to just breath is crucial when so many things are going on. Wonderful poem. And keep up all the hard work!
