This is my contribution to National Limerick Day.
I’m falling behind in my life,
The piles of stuff cause me much strife,
Overwhelm kicks in,
Oh, where to begin?
This is what happens at mid-life.
Enjoy the day and Do Something.
Foreboding thoughts as I near the scale
Energetic efforts of yesterday brings hope
Angst fills me, the line creeps higher
Rue the day I hit fifty, its been a standstill since then, Argh!
This was written for the Trifecta weekend challenge, which was to write exactly 33 words on FEAR and I made an acronym into a poem. I have struggled with many fears my whole life. I have yet to overcome the fear of the scale.

Virginia Views has inspired me as a cocooned writer.
She posted to write down the first ten words that come to mind and three of the words would be the post title. I decided to use the words for my post.
My theme was Summer. The end of the summer filled my head and heart this past weekend. I had ten glorious days away from work that were exhilarating. I felt like myself again.
Fin (The End)
The trail sloped into the bright, hot day
A new path to begin
Escape routes of the past served well at the time
Messes made and cleared
Mothering to perfection no longer necessary
Ashes released into a butterfly
Life of music celebrated
Time to create new

When I speak her name I cannot speak
Who should speak?
Love at core
Time has come
Loving hug, kind thought, voice breaking, tears come
Bring it in
Sing to her
You are Mine
Love you, Mom
‘Til we meet again
