You missed your deadline but that’s OK.
You know sometimes life gets in the way.
Seeking joy ought be the One
after which all else can come.
Just because today you slacked
doesn’t mean your virtue lacked
or fiber, skill, or zeal or worth.
You took a break to breathe on earth.
Forgive yourself the crime this time
and ensure tomorrow you’ll align
with your goals so that you’ll be
ending your day more happily.
