Please Read Tomorrow August 11, 2010

Filed under: poetry — laurenmichelleotheim @ 11:30 pm

I procrastinate. Sigh. I am so good at procrastinating.
It is the only thing I can not do, and still be good at.
It’s a paradox. And I have always liked paradoxes. Does that make me one?
But mostly I’ve always wanted to be an enigma.
I’m not quite sure why, which is quite enigmatic in itself.
Maybe it’s because I bounce around from productivity
to complete
Maybe it’s because I often find myself putting off the things I want to do.
It’s as if they scare me. But why?
If I want to do them, why?
Why? Why? Why? Why? WHY?
Oh the questions of the universe.
Writing. What sets me free from everyday boredom. What gives me wings.
I can be anything I want. It supports everything.
Including the fear of failure.

  1. Maybe, at times, procrastination is gestation.
    Put off long enough maybe was not so important?
    I used to worry about procrastination until I analyzed
    and thought ‘don’t sweat the small stuff’.

  2. Nice and great thought about procrastination πŸ™‚ I used to do it last tim especially while doing assignments XD, but tend to get rushy and anxious at the last minute, which is not really great =X I learnt my lesson and thank for sharing^^~
