National Poetry Month 2022- Foundlings and Wonderments- Poem #18- "Even though..."

"Even though"

Even though every decision you make is questioned

And the technology doesn't work at all

And you find out you missed an important meeting

Then rush home from work to spend $200 on a plumbing issue

And discover that you somehow forgot to pay the utilities bill

And have to file for an extension on your taxes

And your leftovers explode in the microwave

The dog curls up tightly against your hip.

It’s comforting to know someone still likes you.

(C) Carol Wilcox, 2022

Hugs!!! I had a note on my marker board one really challenging year of second graders. The note said, "Look for something wonderful." You needed something wonderful yesterday, and the dog was there!
Thank you for the daily inspiration.
