Menopausal mayhem

Running through the town

Up and down throughout the night

Changing your sweaty night gown

Whiplash inducing mood swings

Crying at the drop of a hat

Overwhelming rage comes and goes

Emotionless, feeling flat

Calm and serene with experience 

Grace that comes with age

Blissfully walking room to room

Clearing mind and space with sage

It’s borderline in a nutshell

You feel like two separate people

You are wise and wonderful

But she is downright evil

Your up your down your tired

Though you struggle to sleep through the night

Fatigue and joint pain join the bash

I call it ‘peri delight’
