My mind is reeling somewhat overwhelmed stressed, distressed over impending progress as I step forward towards the future into an unknown tomorrow my first instinct is to retreat in the sweet oblivion of procrastination, hesitation & constant second guessing. I make lists of unfinished business then sit and watch Netflix, while the hours of the day whittle away to the coming dawn I feel a yawn coming on and know that soon I have to set aside this pen and find a way to end these lines with a suitable rhyme that continues the flow before I lie back and ponder the things I haven’t done and need to complete tomorrow.
