I am always writing lists,
It’s something I love to do;
A personality trait many possess.
I must admit I do like to be organised,
But I suspect the lists are just something to do
While I avoid doing the to dos written-
Another form of procrastination.
I always joke to my mum
“You need a list for all your lists!”
But I can see how it gets like that.
I have separate lists for everything
Things to draw and things to write
Things to buy and things to try
A 2017 resolution list- even though I said I wouldn’t!
Some stuff has been written for years
Still yet to be crossed off.
Yet I still add more- so much ambition but such little drive.
Maybe this year’s resolution should be to complete the lists
There are so many
Scattered in hundreds of different pretty notebooks
What am I doing?!
I’m not doing anything
So why am I still writing the lists?
A way of trying to gain control of my life maybe
When not a lot is going well
Writing the lists at least makes me feel like I have
Some sort of a plan
And they give me something to do
