My Sweat

by Evelyn O. Simon

Look at my face, full of sweat.
I lift up my head towards the sun,
asking "Is this the hottest it'll get?"
Hot sticky sweat lingers on my skin,
feelings of frustration develops within.
My man, all of a sudden wants to cuddle.
My children's screams from play,
has my nerves all in a bundle.
My man whines, "Honey I love you,
and I'm in need!"
I retaliate, "Well what about me?"
My sweat continues to spill from my pores,
as my life reveals itself in scores.
This, is my sweat.
