Through the Looking Glass

Hard working woman

The day starts before
the sun rises
Getting ready for the
long day ahead
She showers still
yawning
Wishing she were
still in bed

But breakfast to
make for everyone
Getting the kids
ready for school
Her husband dashes
out
Forgetting his keys
the silly fool

And suddenly the house
is still
Not a sound to be
heard
She bathes in the
peace for a moment
Knowing soon it will
be her turn

And off to work she
goes
For a few crazy
hours a day
Before heading
home
To prepare dinner and
a table to lay

Oh she dreams
of more!
Those dreams
screaming
Wanting to be heard
all the time
But for now she will
carry on dreaming

One day she will
have her day
All will come
to pass
Until then
though it’s all
Through the looking
glass
