Traction

by joetwo

Like a car wheel spinning in the mud

Sometimes it takes time for the mind to gain traction

To gain a grip on the mud of procrastination that it is mired in

Woe betide those in a rush

Gaining traction takes as long as it takes

It can’t be rushed

It may occasionally be coaxed

With deadlines, guilt-trips

Though only at great risk

Because when the great mass of mental activity gets moving

It moves with an inertia that belies  it’s size

Harder even to stop than to start

Who knows where it will end up?
