Avoidance

My horoscope says focus on current commitments

As if it's written in the stars that I should work,

And my sister says stop wasting time because

Your GCSE's are coming up in a few months.

I wonder if it's a sign, those words from her –

Combined with the horoscope's advice for Aries.

I sit here, tapping out lines on clicking keys and

Contemplate my use of time and lack of self control.

They say I should take personal responsibility

And prioritise, and take down notes with clarity.

I stress about work and waste time calming myself

With simple words – in lines of poetry.
