I said I’d write that paper.
I said I’d do it later.
Not much of a debater,
I’m a procrastinator.
This habit I have’s a bad one
But I’m one of the million
Who put stuff off like children
Delaying just a smidgen…
I find it undeniable
This habit is unbreakable.
Its power is unstoppable,
Its hunger is insatiable.
Affected by sleep? It cannot be
It gets the job done more easily.
When your eyes are forced closed relentlessly
And hours are lost instantly.
Distractions are for sure contrived
And in no time they have arrived
And in no time you are deprived
Procrastination here has thrived.
Unbreakable, I do repeat.
Solutions just do not compete.
Things are left incomplete;
A hand full of sour deceit.
Procrastination. I see it. I run.
Procrastination. It sees me. It flies.
I approach with caution, with discretion
It tells me I’m wasting my time.
It twists my words.
It turns my ways.
It teases my mind;
Lost me in a daze.
I fight to stay ahead of time
It stays a step ahead of me.
Unbreakable this thing may seem,
Undefeated it is indeed.
