There are dishes in the sink

My to-do list never ends

I want to do everything all at once

And I try my best

But burnout’s back

Tears well in my eyes

I can’t do anything now

My body screams for rest

So I lay down my aching bones

But my eyes won’t close

And my mind won’t slow

I’m stuck in the pain of my humanity

How long ’til I can be a higher being?
