Weekend Writing Prompt ~ Get Up #wwp

0

You can live like a sloth in a faux idyllic way
Wasting the hours that make up your day
Instead pick a goal, then lift up your feet
And set out to conquer any activity
Be it a marathon that you’ve trained yourself for
Or a disorganized closet that’s become an eyesore
Perhaps connecting with an old friend or love
Or shampooing that long-neglected rug
The key to success should be turned to drive
Get yourself out of neutral and start feeling alive
