Not Today

Today’s prompt for poem-a-day month is “Not Today.”

I hope none of you have the same trouble I sometimes have getting motivated, but from what I hear, you are often in the same boat I am.


Not Today

Strange that in the working week
I have such lofty hopes
of all the work that I’ll get done
involving work and soaps
and cleaning, dusting, all the things
that gathered dust this week,
All my hope eternal springs
But now it looks so bleak.
I may have thought that I would be
energetic, motivated
And here I am on the couch
completely enervated.
Some day I’ll get to all that work
I won’t be led astray
Someday I swear, I will be strong…
Today is not that day.
