Procrastination

Journey's bound to nowhere
can I catch one somewhere?
Little twinkles of light gleam
yet I can't follow the stream,
the wind blows me backward
I cant find the switch forward.

Every highways a dead end
short circuit within didn't send
so where am I going to turn?
my stomach wants to churn.

Is there a map for this course?
I'm feeling a case of remorse
nothing connects broken links
non committal mind only thinks.

Tomorrow's here then it goes
the motivation starts than slows
everyday a repeat, months pass
reflection same in mirrored glass.

Casting your own it looks better
maybe I could knit you a sweater
never mind you would freeze first
granted you had seen my worst.

So now you want a tasty dinner
you say you want to be thinner?
This mind that occupies cripples
you'd get more from ocean ripples.
I've lost my sense of determination
can I simply delete procrastination?

Ah, call me the procrastination King.  If your journey is to nowhere or your ambition is to do nothing - just follow me...LOL  Man, I relate well to this one.
