“Intentions Time” by Jamison

Published 8:58am Wednesday, May 8, 2013

To think about what

Must be done on

Any given day,

Prioritize you must,

It can be no other way

A dance of destiny

Begins at dawn, for

Some who then arise;

Agendas are pre-planned,

Important notes apprise.

For others caught back

In the past, they rework

And review –

Creating frowns upon

The face, concluding

What is true.

But it gets worse

When you’re down in bed,

With all the guilt from

What’s not done

Running through

Your head.

Alas, to we who suffer

Intention’s time and toll;

It will or won’t be

Manifest, what starts

Out as a goal.

– Janet Jamison, written Feb. 16, 2013
