Written for the 9/16/13 Poetic Bloomings prompt: making a list
An education I had missed
seduced me to proceed
to fill out forms and make a list
of courses I would need
to make up time so quickly lost
with unrelenting speed.
The bridges needing to be crossed
might easily impede
the progress on this path I take
in order to succeed.
With perseverance, I will make
the tide of doubt recede
and tackle all that’s on my list
refusing to concede
defeat, but rather will insist
that soon I’ll be degreed.
