Why is it so easy to procrastinate
Scroll through your phone in a bored state
But not put it down to actually begin
That task, the thought of which makes you want to sleep in
Life is busy with myriad chores to complete
Conventional wisdom tells you to enjoy the sweet
Fruits of labor once your work is done
But I want to enjoy them before my work has begun…
There is no sword hanging over my head
To complete any project today, therefore instead
Of finding the drive and motivation within me
I am just procrastinating indefinitely..
Now that my proclivity to waste time I have solidified
In words, my conscience has woken up and realized
From my phone I need to separate right now
And summon my willpower to begin actual work somehow..
