soup

soup

A Poem by Juliespenhere.
"

life is like a big bowl of soup stirred up and chopped and blanched and boiled

"
in this crazy saucepan
of soup I put
carrots celery
onion stock chicken
turnip parsnip
and herbs
salt and pepper
and of course
love

my kids will eat tonight
my work is done today
washing housework
cooking
reading
relaxing
writing

in this saucepan of life
we mix it all up
we cant stand still
we have to keep going
we cannot give up
we need to keep cooking
up our pot of soup
we cannot give up
we have to keep stirring the pot
keep chopping up the veg
keep being strong for our family
inside feeling so very weak and tired

if we don't
we the mothers have to 
and also the fathers
its our pride
we have to have a saucepan
stirring up the pot
keep chopping up those
carrots
our time will never come again
lets make our pot worthwhile
lets put our grievances aside

Great poem!! The only part you may want to work on is capitalization of words in the verses and apostrophes in your conjunctions.
