Torn by family

We are torn

This way and that

With things

With people

With time

 

Do you realise dear sibling

That when you want that

You tear at my heart

You tear at my mind

 

Do you realise dear loved one

That when you need me

I am torn from my own

Requirements

 

Do you realise dear parent

That no matter my love for you

When you give to me

I am torn.

 

My life at the moment

A balancing act

Of family, friends, finances and future

 

I am no different from all of the others

Busy and needing more time for me

And when I am asked for time, service or action

I am torn because I have to dig deep to find that to give.
