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

A poem where the title says it all.

 

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
