I’m not sure what you do once you’ve become so far behind in some areas that it’s apparent that you will not catch up, you must start over. It’s one thing if it only affects you and your world but when it affects others, there’s a giant heap of guilt on top of everything else. Do I first do the things that need doing or do I forgive myself for not doing them in the first place?

Poem a Day #23

Being behind
has become the way I define myself
not that there’s too much to do
but that I’m not doing what I need to be doing.

I need a new dictionary
