Hi Jay,

I enjoyed reading your poem today :) You have your own unique writing syle, and explain the daily grind quite well. I could picture myself doing all the things you memtioned. My pace has slowed lately due to needing a hip replacement. I find I'm noticing things I never noticed before so maybe it has been good for me to slow down a bit. Sometimes we need a good crack upside the head before we pay attention and see the obvious that is right in front of us.

This is simply a deliciously fun read. The meter and rhyme are fluid and quite yummy when read aloud. The way you walk us through the day to day routine of living is beautifully executed. Well done and thank you very much for sharing it.

A very entertaining poem with a lot of cold hard truth scattered about. I liked your style of writing and enjoyed the read.

Boy, you sure said a mouthful. I could so well relate with each and every word. I've run the race, it's almost over. Just waiting for the last page to turn so I can see if I won or not.

A very well-written poem about our daily lives that means we have to get up early, go to work until it is late, we fall into bed to sleep just to repeat tomorrow again. It takes a brave human to take on this rate race.

Oh! How very true. You have nailed it on this one! How we deal with it all is what matters. Your poetry is so full of life experience. I so enjoy reading it. You have a conversational tone within your poetry also, yet it all comes together in rhyme. That is quite a talent, I believe. Great job with this, as usual and I so regret being out of sixes!
Have a great day!
Wendy

-I like your poem, jaybird.
-I enjoy your rhyme and
story that you tell.
-The poem flows very well.
-You show daily life from
getting up in the morning
to little irritations and
big problems.
-As you say, "It's all those
struggles in between."
-A very good conclusion, too.
-Thanks for sharing.

I loved the sentiments here, the rat race we must all be part of and we still have to get on with it because that's what we do!

I struggled with this line: "It's drag up in the morning". It didn't make sense to me?

Do you mean it's a drag?

Maybe:

(It's a drag here every morning)

Love Dolly x

Excellent and very true, I stumbled on the last line of the fourth stanza, it's as though it is missing a word or that you have cut it short? Yes we are here to run the human race and to look after our home, very well done****kahpot

"Life's Daily Grind", is an extremely well-written and deftly descriptive piece. This talented poet's work was a pleasure to both read and review. To me, this is a six, but unfortunately I only have fives left.
