Slow and Steady

I am the tortoise
I will not speed past you
I will not pass you at all
             on your best day.
            but I’ll do today
         what I did yesterday
      and tomorrow, again:
Work steadily
     without interruption
     until the day is done
              and on most days
You will find you have fallen behind
                I have come out ahead.
              (without coming out of my shell)
