Dreary Obligation

Sometimes the real reason something feels,
like just another task you have to grind out,
is that even though it once brought you joy,
the challenge has faded as your skill grew.

It’s not always the case,
really, it’s not,
but it’s worth considering,
because it’s something you might be able to control.

And that would be a nice change of pace.

Wouldn’t it be?
