the eleventh hour

Deadlines are helpful
or we wouldn’t bother
to subject ourselves to all
of this pressure.

At least I wouldn’t,
and yet here I am
daily racing the clock
to set feelings to text
before the clock switches
to a whole new day to waste.

I started this with
no real conviction to continue,
but that’s how success happens,
not when you commit,
but when you do the thing.
