Day 29 Prompt: Upside Down
“Have you ever had one of those days where everything feels upside down? Tell us about your weirdest day.”
Upside down day, things haven’t gone my way; I keep trying —
Providing for my family and doing all I can, but today, I can do nothing right.
Slid on the steps, took a tumble, I’m okay; but I’ve a a few painful bruises and —
I wasnt listening today in the meeting, and usually no one cares but today the boss was mad.
Desiring for the day to end, but the clock kept ticking slower and slower, the more I watched.
End of the day finally came and I went home, through traffic; for the first time ever, I crawled right into bed.
Dreaming was nice, I felt free at last; but as I slept, dreams turned to nightmares.
On my mind, was my bad day at work, the extra time I have to put in, to finish everything that needs doing.
Words fail me when I half-awake, my kids are loud and jumping on the bed –they’re hungry and Dad won’t make dinner.
Nodding, drowsy, I reach for my purse and hand them forty-dollars for pizza and salad, before sliding back into my dreams; today I need sleep.
