Time to Consider

My world revolves around

one little girl
     one rambunctious boy
          one ambitious woman

When I consider how my days are spent

calming storms of anxiety for ballet shoes, math homework, prose interpretation...
     preventing epic boil overs and repressing my own frustrations at his reactionary spirit
          the smallest acts of kindness - ice water and coffee when waking, and flowers with groceries.

I anticipate smiles on the 'morrow.
The activity is less vital than premise,
if industry, occupation, or even vocation
rule my day, I must pause and allege account,
profit resides not in mere enterprise,
it prospers by begetting empathy and covalent bonds.
