So often I am worn out
My mind or body or both
Only still going from gravity’s pull
Keep forgetting to stop
Even as the rubber burns

My sister recently reminded me that I have to step back from working all the time on things (the farm) and do things that I enjoy and not just what would help out around the farm. Working is good and being able to help with things is also good, but there are times when you need to not be burning the oil, whether it be midnight or not.
