Rhythm of Progress

A sonnet about productivity

Amidst the humdrum of life's daily grind,

Where minutes race and hours swiftly flee,

It's easy to feel like time is unkind,

And productivity is far from thee.

But hear me now, dear friend, and take a breath,

For though the clock may tick away in haste,

There's power in each moment, beyond death,

And time itself, with purpose, can be laced.

So take each task, no matter how mundane,

And give it focus, heart, and honest care,

And witness how your efforts bear sweet gains,

In ways that might at first seem quite unfair.

For in the end, it's not the speed or force,

But steady progress: that's your true resource!


Thank you for reading! This poem is about how to hurry up by slowing down.
