To finish, to complete is sublime
But to not

Thwart attempts
At forward motion
Progress and success
Self-inflicted curse
To leave ends hanging
By the plenty
Frayed and unresolved
Great ideas dangling
None get off scot-free
Of resentment
Of recrimination
Of repulsion
From the revealing mirror
The soul laid open
In all its loathing
Commitment to
To Completion
To cancelling
The subscription to fear
The monthly flagellation
For all that wasn’t done
A start
Tiny advance
Miniscule progress
Crawling inches
With recognition
Of just one thing
A single act
