Unwelcome Outcome

And another month begins

Ushered in by yet another

Madcap rushing to complete

All that last month went undone.

The month is not yet  even born
While here I sob and wonder

Already sinking in defeat

By all remaining to be done.

With body aching in fatigue,
Motivation rent asunder,

Wishing for some magic cheat

To finish ‘fore the rising sun.

All these pale before the pain

Of knowing I’ve myself to blame.
