On Procrastination

Procrastination is
the bundle of excuses I tell myself
to convince myself
that there is still more time.

It is the shield I use
to keep myself gloriously busy
by keeping my to-do list ever expanding.

I need to stop waiting
      for the right moment to come,
            for a sign
            or to feel inspired,
                  and just start doing it.

Waiting won't make it happen,
                      only action ever will.

About this poem:
Ever since 6th grade, procrastination is one of the things I have an internal conflict with every single day.  It's something that I don't think will ever be cured or fixed, but managed every day by actively putting forth effort.  Action is more productive than inaction.
