[Poetry] Procrastination

Putting off for another hour, another day, another week, another month the
Responsibilities that is nonetheless achievable in such a short time
Only if we learn to put our efforts together and
Concentrate really hard on our tasks and prioritize those
Responsibilities that needs our utmost and immediate
Attention and proper action. And words such as
Stress and irritation will be our constant companion if we still continue to
Think of putting work aside for another hour, another day, another week, another month
Instead of start working on it and see it through the soonest we can. Instead, we can’t resist the temptation of saying
Not now, maybe later and then soon find ourselves overwhelmed
At the enormity of piled up tasks, and deadlines looming on the horizon
Threatening to bring us to the edge of our sanity.
In our effort to finish up really fast, we end up doing poorly and all
Our efforts, struggles, and late
Nights working away were all for naught.
