Procrastination

 
Yesterday, I said I would
Until the time had passed,
And now today, I see my list
Of never-ending tasks.
 
Why so, I ask myself, did I
Put off that task at hand?
For yesterday has added to
My ever-growing plans,
 
Of things I say I will attend,
Accomplish or provide;
Seems every day I put if off -
It multiplies in size.
 
A simple job if given
My devotion for a time;
Would surely have resolved itself
And eased my worried mind.
 
However, due to circumstance,
As always is the case;
I had no time to spend that day …
I had no time to waste.
 
For yesterday, I worked on
All the tasks I had delayed,
From days before when I would say
I have no time today.
 
You see, tomorrow’s easier
To say that I will vow,
To catch up on the overload,
And yet - I wonder how?
 
‘Tis easier to play the part
Of victim in this case,
And be the martyr ever-more
I have no time to waste.
