Writing Prompt: Right Now?

What do you need right now?

I need to write my stories. I need to read many books.
I need to promote my website and focus on my looks.
I need to draft some posts. Figure out book reviews.
Find a community to call my own and contests of the right hues.

So much to do to chase a dream.
So much to do within a day.
40 hour work a week. 56 just for sleep.
Leaves just 72 to chase the dream.

Yet, in comes chores, dinner, and bills.
Fix the house, mow the lawn, make sure little stomachs are filled.
Then tired you are, no energy to spend.
No motivation to grab the dream again.
It’s time to query. It’s time to research,
but now you can’t get your head to work.

A day comes and is gone and your dream’s on the shelf.
You want to give up, but can’t face yourself.
Hope is thin, a small light of resistance.
But every step closes the distance.

So, go on and write and go on and read.
Every bit will help your dream.
