Once Again

Once again I woke to the sound of cars honking and people yelling.
Once again I got stuck in the early morning traffic.
Once again I was late for work and had no excuse for my boss.
Once again I was yelled at by my boss and arrived at my office with my confidence depleted.

Once again I sat at my desk and prepared for a long day of work.
Once again I rose from my desk after a long day of work my legs stiff and aching.

Once again I walked to my car and began the short drive home.
Once again I unlocked my apartment door and told myself I should clean my home.

Once again I fell asleep late sitting in front of the T.V.
Once again I woke to the sound of cars honking and people yelling.
