Regulate

Organize the week ahead,
or read a good book instead.
“Procrastination steals time”
listen to loud inner chimes.

Sit right down prepared to write,
daydreams always win this fight.
“Loose grip on sweet fantasies,
tamper with reality.”

Smell the flowers, grab a treat,
hope the next few days are sweet.
Create plans to follow through,
filled with goals hearts can pursue.

Schedule is finally filled,
sit back at ease, also thrilled,
made sure each day carries fun,
so happiness also runs.

  1. I surely needed this today Grace. My mind has been so cluttered lately, I appreciate the perspective!

  2. But wait, what if the book you’re reading is about how to organize? Is that still procrastination?

    New idea: Daydreaming is okay if what I’m daydreaming about is also what I’m writing about. Added bonus if the keys fly on the keyboard AS I’m daydreaming.

  3. A gorgeous poem, Grace. “Procrastination steals time” is so accurate. I do far too much procrastinating and not anywhere enough ‘doing.’ Also, the lines, “Sit right down prepared to write, daydreams always win this fight”, is something else I experience. I really enjoyed this poem – thanks for sharing it. Xx πŸŒΉπŸ’•

    Organize the week ahead,
    or read a good book instead.
    β€œProcrastination steals time”
