Hour 3


I wish I could tell you
we ride every day, or at least a few times a year.

Truth is our horses are lawn ornaments
since we are consumed by work, school, activities.

I wish I could tell you that I spend time each day,
appreciating nature and centering myself.

Truth is most days I’m just hanging on
trying not to fall off Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

I want to believe I can hop off the ride
once and a while.

Truth is I find more ways, like surfing the net,
to distract myself.

I want to believe, this too can change.

Truth is I love my crazy life –
husband, kids, animals
crazy schedules and all;
I just need to take the blinders off once and a while
and look around.
