    Reflections on the days of the past..
    Moving forward... can't live in it..

    But those who forget the past.. will repeat
    The past always has a lesson in it...

    The things that we must go through..
    The reason ... to help us grow...

    My worst quality from the past.. is PROCRASTINATION...
    I gotta change this.. this I know...

    I want a premium membership..
    PROCRASTINATION... should've went to the post office and didn't go..

    My procrastination is a sin .. because it can do some harm..
    Mother Destee said if we don't help.. one day I might not be able to sign on

    I criticize myself this way... cause I say that this place matters to me..
    but I haven't done all I can do.. but i'm allowed to write here and feel free..

    I keep the tobacco companies alive.. seven bucks i spend each day..
    If I wanted herb.. i'd leave right now.. 5 am to buy drugs i'd be on my way...

    No, more procrastination... our Sister needs our help today.....
    I need this community more then it needs me but we all gotta help it stay!

    So what I ask myself... is why.. why put off for tomorrow what I can do today...

    cause one thing for sure I know tomorrow ain't promised anyway.

    Hi Sister Lady
    Your flow is so touching and well felt.
    Life brings so many choses, and we have
    to do what we can the best way we can.
    This is a wonderful place to just be nothing more
    then US. I enjoyed your flow. So true sis tomorrow
    is never promise,but we do have today.
    Keeping bringing it sis. :grouphug: We are family.

    No, tomorrow certainly isn't promised. But we become lax, and just take for granted that what we see in the present surely will remain available. Thought provoking post, and a good resolution to have.

    I'm working on procrastination too, not alone, not alone...those habits are hard to break sometimes.

    felt this poet.
    beautiful.
