Imagination

Here stands a grand and mighty tree, straight and tall and free
As tall as to reach the roof of the sky, dwarfing me like a fly 
Such a true colossus, as wide and round as a giant mound
Its elegant foliage is as richly green with life as ever been
Its powerful roots are on hand, colonizing the depths of the land

Anticipation and Reality

Seeing that I trained so hard for the rugged mountain
Been up and down the stony rough slops
And readily look forward to wrestling with a mountain
Reality brings not a mountain when the real moment comes
She brings me a rough river to cross instead

Procrastination

Like a politician vying for a seat too hot to miss
Procrastination stands on hill tops with malice
Starts mudslinging today and elevating tomorrow
Says procrastination, cunningly yet too narrow:
Today has issues, in fact today always falls short
