An Inner Push

The other day I did some chores
That I’d been putting off.
It made me feel so good
But hear me out before you scoff.

They weren’t monumental things –
They’d languished on my list;
Yet every time I'd thought of them,
My brain had them dismissed.

So finally, I ordered lenses
For my months-old frames.
I had some papers notarized
For certain health care claims.

I bought a bunch of greeting cards
For birthdays coming soon.
I splurged and got some brand-new clothes;
The time was opportune.

I stopped in at the drug store
And the market, not exciting;
But then I found a shady bench
To work on some new writing.

Sometimes it takes an inner push
To get the basics done.
It’s easier to tackle more
As long as you’ve begun.

You are such a joy. I have to give you 3 smiles. I'd give you more but there's not enough room on the page. Rockman :-) :-) :-)

My saying is "close your eyes and do it". Just tackle it and it will get easier once the first moment is passed. Funny poem, Ilene. I enjoyed it. Love, Toquyen
