    Ordinary
    By bangtail

    To left, the laundry
    stacked clear to my knees.
    To the right, the dishes
    that should already be clean.
    Behind, the children
    wanting something from me.
    In front, the husband,
    eyes glued to the TV.
    Inside, the screaming
    that never does cease.
    Outside, the smile
    that I put on to please.
    Soon, the darkness
    that allows me some peace.
    Tomorrow, the alarm clock
    that interrupts my dreams.
    Again, I will struggle
    to make sure it's complete.
    Again, I will spend
    all day on my feet.
    Again, I will wish
    I was something extraordinary.
    Still, I will be
    the definition of ordinary.
