be careful what you wish for

lady bugthe enterprising bug’ll
push and pull
and struggle
she’ll persevere
through winds
and rain
to make her way
back home again
and why,
she never asks,
this is her only chore
she once had
other tasks
she doesn’t anymore
just bring us food
the kids protest
she wishes for
an empty nest
or that she wasn’t
so she can have
a little rest
be careful what you wish for

this verse owes its existence to the Daily prompt – struggle
but it also holds a place in the Daily prompt – careful, while i work on something new
