Here’s a light take on procrastination…

So Stop Asking!

it is not my place

to decide for you

what you should

or should not do

nor where

nor when

nor how

nor who

all these choices

reside with you

matters mine

are in my charge

in matters yours

I remain at large

    …and you’ll be able to blame someone else if you don’t like the outcome… 😉

    Thank you for visiting, and for your kind words!

    Thank you! 😉

    I see a mystery here. You seem to be graciously seconding Gautami’s sentiments — but your posted comment is date & time stamped more than two hours before Gautami’s comment was received.

    Are you clairvoyant?

  3. I so wish others would make my decisions for me sometimes!! This poem could have been written by my mother every time I try to force her to make my decisions for me and she refuses saying “I don’t know you have to decide for yourself”!

    Sounds like you’re dancing with the flip side of the same obstacle to action. I struggle with procrastination, owing to a tendency to perfectionism, mixed with my ADD — ends up mimicking OCD.

    There’s always some way to get stuck… 😉

    I hear what you’re saying. I wrote this piece as a tribute to my wife and I. We both seem to react this way with each other — deferring decisions back and forth until one finally chooses to act.

    It’s a very strange thing, given how totally independent and self-starting we are when apart… ?

    Thank you! 😉

    Important truth, with a dash of humor… maybe those who need to will hear the message!
