Jesus, help me off this merry go round

I feel I am at an amusement park

ready to be thrown off a merry-go-round

I am trying to keep up with life

with the obligations

I have accepted

Help me set down

the things others have asked of me

I cannot stand much longer

under the weight of the demands

Help me set down the projects

         that burden me

and walk away

I need time alone

I need time with you

Help me say no

when I need to say no

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
