This Year So Far

This year so far really sucks

It needs to go away

And not too soon

And not fast enough

Got through the first of January without a worry

Then came the second


Everything went to hell

Three cases of cancer

Two broken ankles

And one trip to the ER for an asthma attack

I am stressed

I am strained

And about three seconds from running away and joining the circus

So come on God

What else you going to throw at me?

Give it your best shot

How about a lightening bolt from above?

Maybe frogs

No you would never do that

I love the legs

Deep fried and covered in garlic, pepper and hot sauce

So I would be denied that tasty treasure

Why I don’t know

You tell me…you have got all the answers

Now I sit pondering this six-week disaster

Angry at God

But happy with a rare moment to myself

Zoning out

I can feel my heartbeat

I can hear myself exhale

I start to relax

Then a voice whispers in the back of my brain

You forgot to take the trash out

And of course your shoes are off

Can’t go barefoot

Too cold

Freeze my toes

Nine degrees

Ten feet of snow

So right there!

With that!

I proved my point

Ha ha very funny God

Now back the #@$! up


I am serious

Back off

You are really starting to put a strain on our relationship…
