Procrastination Always has to End

Reality bits

By Rich BurtonPublished 9 months ago 1 min read

Dilly dallying in the sun

In the corner of my eye

Someone standing in the shadows

Telling myself to keep being free, but I’m

Racing towards the figure

All I can see now is darkness

Can’t find the sunshine anymore

The piles of commitment are getting higher

It wasn’t someone in the shadows, but

Our reality telling me

Now is the time to come back from day dreaming
