Grasping and gasping

Trying to hold it all together
to do ‘a good job’
The family
work
marriage
belly in

And
you hold in 
breath
tears
rage

at times loosing
your sense of sanity

You spread yourself
So thin
That you are nowhere 
To be seen

Hold yourself 
Exhale
Relax the grip
The whole world
is not for you to hold
