These metaphysical walls are crashing,

diabolical illusions of destruction awaits me.

Psychotic thoughts controls my brain mechanism.



I’m in the middle of changing the baby’s

diaper, can’t lose total control, yet!

The garbage needs to be taken out.

The garbage collector comes on Monday.

Random thoughts are causing me to smash

my head against these walls- they’re

invading my brains.

Looks like my brain is going dead.



Need to get some double AA batteries

for the flashlight.

I’m crying for help,

do you understand?


I’m about to lose it.



I can’t!

Need to cook breakfast.

The children are hungry.

Just burned the toast again.

I need to buy the baby’s milk.

I’m losing it.



Can’t give up yet.

Ashley will finish college soon.

Got to see her graduate.

I need to take some meds.

Can’t think straight now.

What did I do with those keys again?

It is 5:00 p.m?

I am late.

Almost forgot,

got to pick up Joe from work

where did the time go?



I still have some running to do.

Need to run on the track,

I mean by the store.

Got to pick up the baby’s milk.

I should run off this road and crash.

No, I can’t.

I didn’t pay the car insurance.

I feel like a nervous wreck.



Can’t lose it.

Still got to take out the garbage,

buy the baby’s milk,

see Ashley graduate,

pick up Joe from work.

I can’t lose it!

This is a re-post of my original work. I occasionally revisit some of my work when a subject matter is appropriate.

Sometimes the day in the life of a mom can seem like a circus. Moms find themselves juggling, balancing, and struggling, trying to keep it all together and all in sync. In response to the Daily Prompt Challenge – today’s word is (Circus)
