My  Achilles Heel
Just when I think I’ve conquered
Just when I think I’ve won
Just when I think I can succeed
I find  I’ve just begun.
The task looms large before me
It hackles all my senses
It gains its sheer momentum
And shatters my defences.
My confidence just plummets,
In the face of this big mission
It’s really not then simple
To reach this goal’s fruition.
I may have to change direction
And abandon this objective
It seems that I made decisions
Without a true perspective.
I thought I was invincible
That my powers would abound
I never considered limits
Or how they would confound 
Those tasks and that are around me
Those commitments every day
They gobbled up my leisure
And left no time for play
