I can’t take it anymore,
I’m well aware that I should mop the floor,
But I get tired so I lay down
And before I know it evening rolls around.
The TV beckons but I know,
I’ll lose the day to that black hole.
So many things call for my attention,
Oops, another distraction ruined all my good intentions.
Still I get up
When life gets me down
Even after the snooze button wins one more round.
Because I never know what life has in store.
I’ve missed enough.
I won’t miss more.
