Procrastination


I sit here with so many thoughts going thru my head
I just want to close my eyes and go to bed.
How many times have you felt the pressures taking its toll?
And you want something concrete that you can hold.

You daydream of the way you would like things to be
But you come back to the realities
You know that you must strive to achieve your goals
And not let anything stand in your way
But then you leave it for another day.

Procrastination is always there,
And with your thoughts the space it will share.
You say “leave it for tomorrow and a brand new day”
But tomorrow comes and it’s washed away.
These are the pressures that are taking its tolls
When you lose your control.

Don’t leave off for tomorrow what you can do today
With procrastination there’s a heavy price to pay

    I really can relate to this one Lewis. I promised myself that I would not have
    that attitude of procrastination anymore. Things sometimes can't wait until
    tomorrow because that day may never come. We can only hope that it will but there is
    no guarantee. Very inspiring. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf

Laid on it for a covering,
