I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing with my life. A poem

Since the youngest started school in September, I have been trying to write reflective and thoughtful and vaguely profound posts about how I have been left feeling. They were all awful. Finally, in the last 15 minutes,  I’ve written something that comes close to articulating my current situation. Enjoy!

 
Got the babies in the bedroom
A career? That’s in the bag
A husband who is well endowed
My tits are yet to sag

Got a superb education
A family in good health
A wide and diverse friendship group
I’ve known every type of wealth

Got experience of love and loss
I know I can survive
I’m yet to stare death in the face
Still, I’m glad to be alive

Got confidence, got inner strength
Got water, food and shelter
If life is just a ride, mines been
One awesome helter skelter

Got an appetite for silliness
Come on round – we’ll have a blast
I feel hopeful that the next half
Could be as much fun as the last

But as the kids all go to school
I’m left a spoilt and failed housewife
And when I wonder just what might come next
I realise
I have absolutely no idea what I am doing with my life
