I’m drowning in laziness,
Cracked leather and tea,
I’ve lost my way in a maze
Of musty pages
And crumbly shortbread cookies.
I am well suited to
Accumulated calories
And fictional worlds.
But reality’s sirens
Scream of homework
And responsibilities
That can’t be put off
At least not any longer.
So reluctantly,
I put down my book, and wipe
The crumbs of indulgence away.

"If you build your house far enough away from Trouble, then Trouble will never find you."

"Have you ever looked fear in the face and said, 'I just don't care.'?"

I swear, I feel like this all the time! Beautiful poem :)
