  • I always put things off. I leave things to the last minute and then

  • regret it. There are even times when I have something

  • I need to do, And it’s something I want to do,

  • And as I’m about to see it through, It seems like anything else will do.

  • Because I am a procrastinator, I put things off and say ‘I’ll do it later’;

  • I am my own manipulator, Tricking myself that time is on my side,

  • When it’s not.

  • Because I am a time evaporator, I put things off and say ‘I’ll do it later’;

  • I am a distraction generator, Finding anything and everything to do,

  • Except that one thing.

  • I am an attention detonator, I put things off and say ‘I’ll do it later’;

  • I need a focus investigator, Because I am a perpetrator of crimes against

  • productivity.

  • I play it as cool as a refrigerator, I put things off and say ‘I’ll do it later’;

  • I am a panic operator, I wait until the last minute until fear gets

  • things done, But what if there is no last minute,

  • No deadlines to make us panic, Then what?

  • We would just continue forward forever, Where we’d sit distracted by leisure,

  • Chasing goals we will never treasure.

  • But we are all procrastinators. At risk of living life in line like spectators.

  • Wanting to have done things more than do them, But we do things more once weve done them.

  • So let’s stop putting things off and become life activators, time dedicators, opportunity

  • creators, and do more.

  • Life is there for the taking, but you have to take it, if you want to make it.

  • Life can be rewarding, but there is no award for ambitions ignored.

  • Whether it’s that project youve yet to finish,

  • Or that work youve yet to start, be smart.

  • Good things DO NOT come to those who wait, So don’t leave it to fate, your life deserves

  • to be great, Be the best version of you, before it’s

  • too late.

  • And if your attention ever fades, focus on this old thought,

  • That time is a thief that never gets caught.

I always put things off. I leave things to the last minute and then
