Procastination


There's a desire to go ahead
There's a strong urge to act now
Yet nothing is done
Many occasions I keep postponing
Deferring the necessities till later
The mouth keep doing it
Mind urges me to go for it
Time ticks past gently
With nothing tangible done
Nor achieved
Before long,
Opportunities are wasted
Leaving me with biting fingers
With opportunities lost
Never to be regained for ever

There! little girl; don't cry!
