Poem: Daily Ritual

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Daily Ritual" is a poem describing how one is in a constant rush in the mornings.

Tacking his to do list until quitting time, then starting his journey back home.

Daily Ritual

A constant rush in the morning,

jumping in and out of the shower,

tossing on clothes,

glancing at the hands on the clock

silently telling him to hurry.


Grabbing necessities as he steps out the door,

sitting behind the steering wheel

fumbling with the car keys starting the ignition,

pressing his foot on the pedal

beginning his destination.


Not a moment of rest in his weary day,

juggling his to do list,

as he waits for that moment

when the hour hand points to quitting time,

when he starts his journey back home.

Time isn't the main thing, it's the only thing.
