Pro-Crastination - Poem by Vicki Ellis
'Never put off until tomorrow that which can be done today.'
This was an age old adage I heard my mother say.
But in my life I have truely found
It's sometimes seems best to turn those words around
Thus, 'Never do today what you can put off 'til tomorrow, '
Has become my personal slogan (sometimes to my sorrow.)
But it's so damn hard to organize the day
considering the chaos that surrounds me,
I simply see no way
To make a plan for Monday any sooner than on Tuesday
And arrangements for the weekend are completely out of question.
Because what I do and where I go
Depend on life's strange ebb and flow;
Will I even feel liike getting out of bed?
Or will it turn out one of those dark days
I hide my throbbing head instead,
And muse on dark-fringed eyes of blue,
Recall the sweetest smile on earth
And feel you in my arms again,
laughing in my fantasy
Bubbling over with secret mirth...
Am I dying?
Or am I just depressed?
Would I feel any better if these secrets I confessed?
And, if that is so,
Who is there to tell?
The mere mention of your name
Leaves me undressed as hell.
I wish I could just go to you;
That things had ended differently,
That I had left room in my life
And you had room for me.
