Untitled – Poem

 

My grandmother gave poetry a go

Unburdened by the concept of paid work

When the need to acknowledge the life became too strong

My father gave poetry a go

Overburdened by the physical work

When the life needed acknowledgement

when my mother was ill

when I was going back overseas

when his mother passed

and for a handful of birthdays in between

 

I am giving poetry a go

Overburdened by my disposition

of believing in hard work

and breathing to do the work

of acknowledging life
