Time To Go Back

It’s time to go back.
I don’t want to God, but it’s time.
It’s not because I want to be lazy.
It’s not because I hate my job.
I love my coworkers.
I even like what we do.
It just means back to no energy.
No energy to write,
to pray,
to read,
to be a good mom,
to be a good church member,
to wear dresses,
to soak up you.
I wish I could support Anthoni and my family
with the gift you gave me
that I love… writing.
But only you can make that happen, God.
Meanwhile, I will serve you wherever you want.

for so many years that I struggled to find time to do anything else.
