Procrastination

He was going to be all that a mortal should be
 To-morrow.
No one should be kinder or braver than he
To-morrow.
A friend who was troubled and weary he knew,
Who’d be glad of a lift and who needed it , too;
On him he would call and see what he could do
To-morrow.
And thought of the folks he would fill with delight
To-morrow.
It was too bad, indeed, he was busy to-day,
And hadn’t a minute to stop on his way;
More time he would have to give others, he’d say,
To-morrow.
The greatest of workers this man would have been
To-morrow.
The world would have know him had he ever seen
To-morrow.
But the fact is he died and faded from view,
And all that was left when his living was through
Was a mountain of things he intended to do
To-morrow.

Blogging, completion of tax paper gathering, ironing, that storage room that needs empting and organizing....hmmmmm
 
Blogging wins! As I was reading, an author said "procrastination produces a false sense of self control."  Again, hmmmm. Naw it actually just makes me nervous and overwhelmed.  So off to another task!
 
Hope all of you are well and you have a beautiful day ~ other than yucky rain today, spring has started to emerge here and the color of blooms abound. Yesterday the sun was so warm and the birds were singing happily.  Glad the sun will shine bright again...To-morrow.

I can see that it gives a false sense of control. But yeah, it's false alright, because eventually all that stuff needs to get done. I'm in the spring cleaning mode, it's the weather :)
