Daily Burdens

While trying to cope
With life’s daily toils
You raise up your hands
To hold back the tide.


Slowly,
but inevitably -
The water seeps through
The fingers.

Yes, it does.

Roy said...

Indeed. And the flow seems to increase more and more each and every day.

Good thoughts Eric.

Hi Forsythia.. signs of the times.. :)

Eric Valentine said...

Thank you Roy and I have to agree with you on the increases.. :)

Janice Thomson said...

How true - well said my friend. Perhaps if we went with the tide instead of trying to stop it...

Stacey said...

Let it seep slowly...let it be so. I helps to relieve and lighten life.

Going with the tide is ok if you know what beach you'll end up on Janice. At times the easy way can be the hardest.. :)

Eric Valentine said...

Hi Stacey, yes feeling overwhelmed comes to mind also, I'm sure you've experienced that at some point my friend. :)

Eric Valentine said...

Hi Cyclopseven, yes I think at times it is not too hard if one can control the flow, so a slow seep will do it. :)
