Get Going


Woke up four hours ago
Went to sleep five hours before that
This jetlag
I usually readjust

This time I didn't bother
I snuggled under blankets on the couch

I got up telling myself
that I would get enough sleep
I would be fine
I told myself that I would get my work done
Complete my assignments within few hours

Yet I haven't started a single one
They were assigned so long ago
We have had much time to work on them so
I am not giving excuses

I am tired and distracted
Perhaps I should drink a mug of tea
Lovely tea
Warming and caffeinating?

Oh, how complex are our bodies
The wonders of the mind, brain, and sleep

I shall get a move on
or soon be depleted of all my energy

Ambitions
Competition
Idols and icons for me to study
To build life from

Intellectuals
Musicians
Artists

Sophistication
Commitment
Studying< br>
Enjoyment and pleasure
Passion and fervor

Easy, now
Work smartly

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
