Gaining Ground*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr



CDLXVII ~> Gaining Ground*

CDLXVII ~> Gaining Ground*
(Opus467 ~> Gaining Ground)
Greeting the day delays cooking breakfast.
More so when you have nothing much to cook.
Your aching needs to leave behind the past,
Makes you decide to take another look;
While looking for a more rewarding nook:
Whatever it is you think you have found,
You hope to boost the cause for gaining ground!
Ere you regret that you got out of bed;
Where you were cozy and comfortable,
Handle the bundle of bills to be paid;
Be sure you make yourself available
To take care of the inevitable:
Gaining ground outside of your comfort zone
Proves easier contemplated than done!
The worries that keep you awake all night,
Are no fleeting harbinger of your dreams;
Promptly they linger as foggy hindsight,
As soon as you invent creative schemes
To quench the anguish of forgotten flames:
Gaining ground becomes habit addictive;
Then it proves hugely counter-productive!
