Thoughts Of A Working Parent

Concerning the feelings of a working parent, July 2006.

The adorned sea about me stifles desire for life and contact;
Only the yearning for escape thrives.
Escape to the embrace of leisure and love.
And yet even this escape is not true,
As fiscally strained, we sit and wonder,
And watch as offspring dance and sing and fight
And find new wonders and glories of the world about them . . .
