The rush every morning having to get up early.

The alarm beeps,
Ringing in your ears.
The reality,
That it is time to get up after your precious dreams.
The day will be dim,
You have to go to the gym.
Always the same,
No-one to blame.
You want to give it the brush,
But it is the morning rush.

    I’ll add….
    Aye! Routines can be bummers at times, but every day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before.

    Very well worded.

  • Bick Parker on Feb 4, 2009

    Morning rush? What’s that? I’ve only got one speed – slow!

    Seriously though, you’ve done a nice little job with this one.

  • Darla Smith on Feb 4, 2009

    I definitely know what morning rush is like.

  • Brent on Feb 4, 2009

    Dude! i thought this was supposed to be about the ‘morning rush’? 61 syllables and that’s all you got?

  • Adam Henry Sears on Feb 4, 2009

    Actually, no offense denus, but I agree with Brent: you didn’t elaborate very well. I have 10 times more thoughts than that in the mornings. Other than that, I like the way you went from free verse to free form in the short number lines you have, kind of implying the same structure in our morning routines. Thanks for sharing.

  • nesita on Feb 4, 2009

    I could agree with that.

  • S Air on Feb 4, 2009

    Good job!

  • rutherfranc on Feb 4, 2009

    rush? I usually press the snooze button 10x before getting up.. and that is to go back to sleep on the couch..

  • IreniaPehuajo on Feb 4, 2009

  • Ruby Hawk on Feb 4, 2009

    Nice poem, Denus.

  • Fornis on Feb 7, 2009

    Very nice poem denus. I came back once again to read this. Rhyming well and describing my routine well some time back.
    Now I wake up as if sleeping again is uncomfortable.
    ha.. ha.. ha..

  • Maggie Hoffie on Feb 10, 2009
