Denial

Have we met?

I'll make you sweat
with heart beating to exhaustion

and you, throwing caution
to the wind...

Source

Procrastination

Did you intend
to prolong our fate?

Increasing self loathing and hate, I am always on the tip of your mind.

Source

Acceptance

Before long, you find
that you can wait no longer.

In this moment, I'll make you stronger
than you've ever been before.

Source

Action

Dig deep into your core
and know that I am ready.

So write me steady,
across the page,

releasing me from my cage,
into the world, clean or messy--

Source

Product

I am your imminent essay.

        Thanks, Sakina! I know the anxiety procrastination brings far too well. Brings me back to my days at the university. I'm glad you enjoyed this poem. May you never have to feel this way.
