Artspark 96 - Hard work

Hard work

Sometimes just waking is hard work -
Dragging through the drudgery of the day
One step after another, leading nowhere.

Don't care about me, you said.  I'm hard work.
Maybe, but not like that.

Poetry is hard work -
Finding the right words, shaping them.
There is frustration
Knowing how far short I come
But it is worth it.
Because sometimes, just sometimes,
It soars.

Hard work?
Maybe -
Like that.
