As everybody often does, I procrastinate. Often its a procrastination of facing the pain held within my heart. Sometimes its because I need a break or feel too weak to face it.
The procrastination can be by distraction but also by intoxication. I recommend neither as both are unhealthy and we should strive to resolve our pain rather than run from it. However, I am human as you are and often I save my pain for tomorrow.
In my drunken stupor
I save my pain for the future.
For now I pen down this feeling
And focus on what I am seeing.
Colors and shapes indistinctly hazed,
But my groggy mind is not fazed.
This numbness of the mind
Is the peace I had hoped to find.
Sobriety comes with unfaced fears,
Followed by rivers of not cried tears.
So for now in my drunken stupor,
I’ll save my pain for the future.
