Stop! Think!

Everything is harder
When you’re tired.
Nothing is a pleasure,
When tiredness takes over.
Little niggles become mountains
When sleep has been deprived,
Tempers have no fuse and blow
When rest has been denied.
People can be tiresome
And Patience takes its leave,
Those we love are fair game
With Frustration on our sleeve.
So many things become a chore
‘Simple’ a mess and muddle,
Inanimate objects challenge,
Sound becomes muffled.
Co-ordination falters,
Vision blurs,
Perception lost,
Eyes downcast,
Concentration wanders,
car

Do you really need to drive today?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
