I ask myself, "What am I doing?"
The time this is due is just ahead looming.
Alas, I think, I have hit a wall.
This challenge to me seems way too tall.
It's times like these when I feel so small.
At night in bed I worry some more.
My head on a pillow as hubby does snore.
Rehashing the failures I've experienced before.
What am I thinking? Poems aren't my thing.
How can I write one making it ring?
Perhaps it could be a song one could sing?
There's so many thoughts. Where do I begin?
How do I avoid the great chagrin?
A lake of anxiety I steep myself in.
But whom am I really writing this for?
The love of my life who I truly adore.
The one who knows me and knows the score.
He will see my heart just the same.
Even if my poem is really quite lame.
Great expectations I really must tame.
My soul, my spirit, need not dismay.
Minutes to hours, twenty-four in a day
All my work is still but just clay.
But when I am done, a week will have passed.
How, I will wonder, did time fly so fast.
No fretting, or fussing, or stewing at last.
