It’ll have to wait.

Done for the day
Moderate days work
Fatigue for
Hand's
Body's
Movements
Expressions

Energy
Still
Clinging
To tired bones
Nothing
Salt and water
Or sage and fire
Can't cure

It'll have to
Wait

One errand left
Transport
The oldest
Child
Home

My
To do
Not done
Taxes 75%
Kids still calming
For bed
Never did get
To those others
Dishes
Clothes
Piled again
Cats' and dogs'
And Kids'
Messes

It'll have to
Wait

Everyone fed
Self included
Body's talking
Telling me
More than
Calories and nutrition
Was needed

The answer
Too big
For the moment
To allow
Deepening desires
For sleep to
Override

It'll have to
Wait

One more thing
A "have to"
A consequence
Of needing more
Help
Asking for help
Got me
More
Reason to
Need help

Now I just
Want
ME
Only
ME
Nothing but
ME

It'll have to
Wait

Hopefully
My one last
Thing
Will leave
Space
For ME
Before
Sleep wins

Otherwise
It'll have to
Wait
