Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6

ode to deadline day.

oh dearest deadline day
bane of my breath

seven ago you were seven away
but it now seems less have passed

the seconds tick slowly, but fast
my head pounds, my stomach growls

nary a word is typed on this blank white
and my phone is silent, asleep as if night

what's left of you seems hours
but more is the work

eventually you'll pass
and i'll smile sweet relief

but soon you'll come back
and my heartache replete
