Challenged

Slipping, creeping, scurrying closer
Time ticks by, mood sinks grosser
Knowing hard times are ahead
Just serves to increase the dread
Of dealing with the tidal wave
New tasks make me a slave
Must learn to live detached
Personal and business mismatched
Stress from one bleeds to another
Days pile on until they smother
Knowing I like to beĀ challenged
Time for delight to be avenged

(This is my October 21st contribution to Poem A Day October.)
