fighting exhaustion

08/10/2009

on a transparent taught string
the hopes of the day lay in the balance
fighting with all remaining energy
a pull on the struggling behemoth
tired and drained from the previous day
220 pounds of lethargy contest
failing remaining and diminishing will power
clock out so far from the present
daily duties menacing with obligation
to pull through is an up-hill mental battle
knowing that a reward awaits patiently
it will not come of its own accord
so anchor in and caffeinate bloodlines
enriching the chance of victory
