My Problem

by Devina

I’ve got a problem

She’s difficult, stubborn and insecure

Sometimes pathetic sometimes strong

She means well and tries to be good

Has a long way to go

She often feels misunderstood

But she fails me time and time again

Thinking about it only gives me a migraine

I wonder when all this trying will bear fruit

Or will this problem will be my undoing

But I must have faith and courage to carry on

Because ’tis for life I’m bound to her

What a trial it is for she angers me so

Tears of frustration and disappointment

Soaks up boxes of ill fated tissue

Yet her little virtues and healthy imagination

Makes me glow

I do my best to accept her for her

To cheer her on to be the best she can be

For you see this isn’t just anyone

Because my problem

Is me

  4. Oh how I recognise those feelings.
    Beautifully written – the battle of ‘within’ each small victory a triumph.

    So enjoyed.
