Wrapped Up In Hours

Other Poetry Add comments

Hey 🙂


Today’s journal prompt touched on my tendency to procrastinate. 

This led to thoughts of hesitation, which in turn became:


When I look at each day

And I try to relay

All the hopelessness wrapped up in hours,

You tell me how I

Have no right to reply

In this manner: come across a coward.


A woman on the train tracks in the dark, with a lantern

It is true that I’m blessed –

I feel guilty and stressed

That I’m coping this badly, so please:

Don’t scoff or roll eyes

At my anguished cries,

Drowning out on society’s seize. 


Just having a brain

Doesn’t mean I refrain

From being unequipped, and dumb.

What comes out of my mouth

Can show a ‘logic drowth’;

But I won’t just dry up/cut and run…

    Not the slightest bit unequipped and dumb and you have successfully built up a whole body of work on varied themes.
