self control

In some areas of my life
I have great self-control
but there are other parts
where I simply do not.

I can procrastinate
make excuses
practice self-deception
and down-right lie
all the while justifying
my lack of discipline.

This is not of my
choosing–I long to
have self-control in
all that I do–and I am
making progress with this–
though with a snail’s
pace sometimes.

Why do we sometimes lack
self-control? The list
is endless, but in our
hear-of-hearts, we
know our sloth
for what it is.

Now I am going to
choose this, no longer
will I lack self-control,
tomorrow, for sure,
I will start, and if not
tomorrow, then very soon!

  1. Very funny! Perhaps a few extra pushups will heal the situation.
