Week
A Poem by Mark S. Peel

Sunday blues may start or end the week
Depending on your frame of mind or predisposition According to the challenge of another commitment
Of your time and effort that must be met on Monday.
Tuesday feels more comfortable as the rule of routine governs. On hump Wednesday the path forward confirms your purpose. Thursday is satisfying only if something, anything,
Has been accomplished since Monday. 

Friday arrives with impending relief:
Liberation from duty, worry from responsibility near, A successful navigation almost complete.
Saturday with reward, a smile is achieved.
Get the impossible personal done quickly
To finish a cycle without regret or sacrifice.
Some you suffer through, some you deny;
Some you rejoice never wondering why.
