Rise, Grind and Conquer

rise and shine 6:00 a.m. and your hand
can’t make it to the alarm clock before
the voices in your head start telling me
that it’s too early too dark and too
cold to get out of bed aching muscles
lie still in rebellion pretending not to
hear your brain commanding them to move
a legion of voices are shouting their
unanimous permission for you to hit the
snooze button and go back to Dreamland
but you didn’t ask their opinion the
voice you’ve chosen to listen to is one
of defiance a voice that says there was
a reason you set that alarm in the first
place so sit up with your feet on the
floor and don’t look back because we’ve
got work to do
welcome to the grind
