Today 14th January the  prompt is Motivation and it  was  suggested by Aaron




I offered to take  her  but  she answered no

I have other things  to do but was happy  to go.

I try  to  chat but  she turns  a deaf ear

I do my best  but  I may  as  well not be here.


He  tells  me  my  cooking  is  not like his

He does it  a  different way  adding  that  and  this.

He  washes  the  floors  quicker  and  better and of course  cleaner

He  he finds  dust  where  I don’t,  his  eyes  must  be keener.


Motivation  where have  you  gone

Is it  something  I’ve  said  or  something I’ve  done?

I used  to  do everything  and  cope  well before

Now  I just  can’t be  arsed. No motivation anymore.


You see motivation is  a very  special thing

You need  to  make  life  go  with  a natural swing.

So if it  stolen  or banished  or killed

It leaves  a huge hole in your life  that  cannot be filled.


When  you offer  to help and it is  thrown back in your face

It really  hurts  and  that hurt can fester and rob your of grace.

Don’t  let  that pain  hurt  you   and  turn your  soul  black

Find motivation  in a different place, regain  the confidence  that you lack.
