Bitter as lemons

Misery envelops me

But mother’s wise words

Pull me out of self-pity

Uncage yourself, life beckons

    Nice Tanka, thank you for joining in on the fun. Looking forward to seeing more Tanka’s on WordPress in memory of the Queen of Haika & Tanka Jane Reichhold.
    Have a nice weekend.
