The Return

The Return short poem

Photo by xlordashx

Caught up in chores dreary
beset with tedium mundane

In a state devoid of passion
caught in all trivialities inane

Sapped of most evident ardor
whilst trying to just sustain

Endeavors notwithstanding
but balance couldn’t maintain

Removed from indulgences
I would much rather prefer

On long road of uncertainty
without any pointers to refer

Did just as much as possible
along the trudge not to stray

Kept my fledging spirit alive
hoping for disorder to allay

Even in darkest of moments
not once did I lose my sight

To get back on to a stratum
from where I did last alight

Time again now to let loose
reclaim all earlier abstained

Carry on with tasks favored
the ones time had restrained
