The Housewife's Lament

The Housewife's Lament

A Poem by Heavenly Scent
"

Just another day in a housewife's life!

"

Just a little bit down, a little depressed,
Feeling blue and a little bit stressed.
The weekend came, the weekend went,
It was, on the whole, another non-event.
Mondy morning, not much to report,
No better today, not even a thought.
Smile bravely on, put feelings aside,
Fight that urge to just run and hide.
Pick up the clothes, cook one more meal,
Wash all those dishes, no time to feel.
Ain't life a b***h when you're feeling so blue,
And inside you're screaming but no-one hears you?

A day in the life, what I find most absorbing is the actual feeling you've projected with certain
animation, how the rhyme form brings your words to life, the feeling is punctuated and the reader
is able to pick up on the emotional intention, downtrodden, as I am sure most people have their

days, so most people should be able to relate to this poem in one way or another, either
being husband or wife, but to capture it in words, i can say this is well written, the form
justifies is something only a writer can accomplish, in my opinion, heartaching passion nicely done.
i felt the beginning and ending to be subtle- powerful, the wording is sentencing. thanks

Just a little bit down, a little depressed,
Feeling blue and a little bit stressed.
The weekend came, the weekend went,
It was, on the whole, another non-event.

I love this piece, sadly enough, it's quite funny - in a not so funny way, but of course. Your lament is my lament, Heavenly Scent!

Nicely done.

Nicely penned in poeticprose . Housework is a never ending task no sooner done than needs done again.
But being amother is perhaps the greatest task a human being can accomplish
