An aspiring writer and wannabe musician. A giant procrastinator,but hey, what else is new? Take a look around my randomly assorted thoughts haha

The Silence

Once, our silence was

warm with words 

unspoken while

we were wrapped

together, not broken

Now, we’re worlds apart

on different cliffs,

facing each other with

different expressions

Yours was glacial

Mine was similar 

to indigestion

The silence cut my heart deeper

than the sharpest knife, and

festered stronger than

an open wound

Do you feel it too?

Are we both

suffering silently and

you just don’t show it?

I guess I’ll never know it.

Your silence is cold

But for me, it’s hellish because

it is my fault.

I couldn’t be silent.

Thoughtless thoughts and

careless words drove you

to this.

I was remiss

to your pain-

I silenced your voice

with meaningless jabber.

Not hearing.

Not listening and now

it’s the latter.

Both of us 

burned our bridge,

but I still cling to

the ropes

hoping all

will be forgiven

Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn’t have the time to sit around and talk about you. What’s important to me is not others’ opinions of me, but what’s important to me is my opinion of myself.

Even though I’m heading home tonight/tomorrow I really can’t think about my family or friends and the happy reunion as much as how much it’s going to suck lugging around my carry on when it weighs around 15 pounds.

It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.

You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.

But in real life, you can’t avoid doing things. We have to earn a living, do our taxes, have difficult conversations sometimes. Human life requires confronting uncertainty and risk, so pressure mounts. Procrastination gives a person a temporary hit of relief from this pressure of “having to do” things, which is a self-rewarding behavior. So it continues and becomes the normal way to respond to these pressures.

Particularly prone to serious procrastination problems are children who grew up with unusually high expectations placed on them. Their older siblings may have been high achievers, leaving big shoes to fill, or their parents may have had neurotic and inhuman expectations of their own, or else they exhibited exceptional talents early on, and thereafter “average” performances were met with concern and suspicion from parents and teachers.

The ice is cracking

and lonely swans float onward

in eternal bliss

unaware of the birdies

floating lifeless underneath

I have no historical evidence, only formal analysis. That should be good enough for you.
