The Swamp

Not on my game
Thoughts floating
Mental swamp
Every thought takes twice the energy
Slow going.

How does one trek through a swamp?
Where does one learn how to swamp-hike?
It’s exhausting.
An energy drain.

It would be so much easier to just sit down in the swamp
To wait until the swamp dries out
To wait for the dry soil to return
Yet assignments and responsibilities are calling
Calling from the other side of the swamp
Calling impatiently for me to just finish

Don’t they see that there is a massive swamp between?
Don’t they see that “just doing it” requires more energy than I have?

Don’t they see that the slog is pulling me down with every step I try to take?
