It Is Always Difficult To Begin The Week - Poem by Shalom Freedman


It is always difficult to begin the week
One's body is lost in a previous sleep
One's mind is still held down and back
Into resting -

The world is bleak
It is empty and difficult
I am empty inside
I have nothing to do
I have too much to do-

Still I must begin
I will do the usual routine assignments
Slowly I will get back into the motion and mind of my work
I am already trying now-

Even a small effort should bring forth suggestions for further effort
It will take time
Slowly I will find the way
From task to task
Into the real work -

Somehow the week will begin again
It always does-

Though now I am still slow and not there yet
I feel as if in writing this
I have somehow already begun to work again-
