Overcoming Inertia

The morning brightness sent me
scurrying indoors
to the comfort of the AC...
YouTube and WhatsApp
fed my insatiable mind
and left me more agitated.
Later, that night
a sudden power cut -
The following dawn,
I was up and about 
to beat the sun.
I walked,
not gingerly
but assuredly.
