Almost there....

Almost there, papers in,

with a sigh of relief.

All those times I nearly quit,

procrastination made me sick;

sick of myself and my lazy mind

that holds me up and I fall behind.

But still, the unsatisfactory woke me up,

got me moving

and desperately proving

to myself that I can do it.

I’m not a quitter, absolutely not;

I will use this brain, not let it rot.

It’s good to try something new, unfamiliar,

stimulate these neurons, don’t let them wither.

Neuro-plasticity is the latest jargon;

it keeps you from dementia-part of the bargain.

But there’s just one catch, you have to work at it,

otherwise in front of those headlights, you’ll be the rabbit.
