Procrastination is the death of productivity.

It roams in my subconscious and preys on my

time like a vulture.

Lack of volition takes hold – thoughts are

refracted, patience turns into resignation.

Rendering me indolent, manacled to scaled

visions of tomorrow.

Decisions fraught within my head, plans come

to naught.

My inactivity breeds stagnation as i watch from

the sidelines.

Lazily waiting for something magical to happen

or someone to show me the way.

I fritter and deplete hours in an offhand way.

Postpone love’s embrace with “some day” and

prolong projects with “maybe tomorrow”.

Time is nothing but a cheating mistress wearing

a lacy lingerie of indolence that out-rightly screams


I hover in the sky- waiting to elope my mind and

body together in order to free myself from the

chains of procrastination and embrace the winds

of change.

Success doesn’t come easy.

Today, I write.

Author: AfroetryC

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
