Debt



Money isn't the only
Method of spending
What we don't have.
As I juggle children
And church,
My calling and his,
Grocery runs and poetry,
Sanity, medication,
Friendship and love,
I sometimes commit to give
More of me
Than I have.
I commit to give
More of Heather
Than God made
Of Heather.
And then I am
In debt.
I sink into the debt
And I pay only
The interest.
My kids have to exist on minimum payments.
This is not
Ok.
The borrower is made slave
To the lender.
I cannot become a slave
To this world.
