I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Pushing to the limit is a poem describing what it is like when one pushes to the limit. Trying to stay awake, rolling her neck from side to side as she runs around like a chicken with her head cut off. She watches others rest as she completes her list keeping herself busy the entire day.
"Little Boots - Get Things Done"
Pushing to the Limit
Squeezing her eyes shut
then opening them wide
trying to stay awake,
rolling her neck from side to side
to ease the excruciating pain.
Pushing herself to the limit
trying to beat the odds,
like a chicken with her head cut off
with no moment to sit and stew.
She watches others rest idly
without fuss or fret,
as she keeps her mind busy
completing her list
with no time for tears
to roll down her cheek.
From the second her eyes peer open
until the wee hours of the night,
she tosses her hand in the ring
to get a head start.
