Willpower and Discipline

Willpower and discipline,
have long been two of the 
most despised words in the 
english language to me.

What character flaw prevents  
the willpower and discipline
necessary to be the person
I imagine myself capable of being?

A half-lived life is heartbreaking.
There is no acceptable excuse, 
not age or disability.

Causing unnecessary chaos

The place which was once my peace stadium

Now a pub of high teenagers and thugs

Smell of pot and weed all over the place

Coughs of exasperation and smoke

A gong sitting with their alpha and weapons

Little black dress, I walk into the room

A cigarette in my hand,unlit keep in mind

Waiting for the time to be right

I shall puff them right outta my ...

Ballad of a Procrastinator

I want to do it

But I don’t do it.

I hope to do it,

I know I won’t do it.


My life of procrastination,

Is believed to be an abomination,

By those involved in my creation.

I will never get spiritual emancipation.

Feeling low, 
absent is my flow,
guilt eats at my bones 
and all my wrongs 
follow me home.

The sun burns me blue,
I can't hear the trees,
the moon always leaves
and my heart does 
drown out in the sea.
