Poem of the Week: Progress Lost

Progress Lost
June 25, 2015

Once I was ahead, now I’m far behind,
Trying to figure out where I’m going.
Have I lost my touch or only my mind?
Either way, this stalemate I’m at’s showing
In my work, no matter what it might be,
Making it seem so dull, lame, and choppy
That I can’t believe that it came from me,
Knowing how much I hate stuff that’s sloppy.
I seriously need to regroup now,
Get my brain in shape ‘fore I go too far
And produce worse material—and how!—
In my quest to at last procure my star.
Back to the books, for now more than ever,
I must undertake greater endeavors.
