Morning Promises: Stop Procrastinating (A Verse)

Morning Promises

Every morning, every day
I wake up with regret
And promise myself 
That I'd do better today
But alas, 
How I fall in the same trap
Of inactiveness and procrastination. 

Every day I feel
That I need to do better
I MUST do better
But by the time
The travelling lamp goes down
I fall into the clutches
Of devil`s vantage.

It took me 35 years to understand,
That I have no one else to blame
For whatever I regret and missed in life
Every opportunity
Every skill
Everything that I did not get
I cannot blame anyone else
But me. 
I'm responsible
For my idleness
For my procrastination
For my attitude
For my habits
For my dry sorrow

No one can hurt me
Unless I let them
No one can make me sad
Unless I let that happen
Nothing can make me lazy
But myself
My self hating attitude
My lacking valor habits
Are my own doing
And those, my friends
are my own responsibility.

So, today
I'm breaking up with myself,
Taking back the reins of my life
Into my own hands.

After 35 round trips around the sun,
Now I understand
That the only thing
I need to conquer
In this ever changing,
Shape shifting world
Is me!

    Wow! it's beautiful and so deep...this is I think, is the last step towards salvation, conquering self...
    Also, only those close to heart, only can hurt us deep...
    But, at last, i only feel that one should not have any regrets in life...neither about his/her choices nor about any losses
    congrats sir!
    beautiful expression.
    On lighter note, u hv expressed counts of ur years too, in a poetic way! too gud...no one needs to ask ur year of birth now...haha
