Treasure Island

Jake Deeds

(5/11/1965 / Arkansas)

Procrastination


My feelings for you now lie too deep for tears
And the waining hour nears
And the fears
And time does not indeed heal all woes
The flesh removed, the heart exposed
But somehow I find strength in what remains behind
In the shadows of memory in my mind
Sometime cruel, sometimes kind...
In my failure to propose.....

    The pivotal moments that change our lives forever... choices we fail to make.. chances we fail to take... of such is regret built.. A man without regrets is a man without a heart... Some things don't appear to be a big deal at the time.. years later we can sometimes see our errors all too clearly.. A moving poem, as always, Jake.. (Report) Reply

    Procrastination often results in opportunity lost, joy unrealized, but I suppose it is an affliction that we all suffer fromat times. Great read.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
