Doneness (Motivational Poem)

Doneness by Joe Reid Kirby III

The best things on the menu often take the longest to prepare,

Knowing what one wants is the first part,

But not understanding proper cook time is an ignorance one shouldn’t dare,

To be “done” is to be ready,

So are we there yet?

You’re done with this,

You’re done with that,

And suddenly all that you’ve ever wanted is there …

Right before your very eyes,

Undeniably prepared to please,

Not tease …

Exactly how you’ve pictured it …

It’s allure makes you salivate,

And the pleasure of satisfaction immediately intoxicates …

You savor every second of the moment,

Every tingle of the senses,

Both physical and spiritual,

Only to realize that it wasn’t until you were “done” that you were completely ready to receive it.
