    ProcrastinationThere is just something about procrastinationI dont why, but to me its a fascinationI cant seem to shake this annoying habitThe idea of stopping it is as fickle as a rabbit.Procrastination is a deadly thing to be trueIts really something that one comes to rueTake for example this poem right hereThis will not take too long just lend me your earThis poem is being written at the end of the wireTo say it isnt a product of procrastination, youd be a liarProcrastination for me does not ebb or flowIt is in fact nothing at all like a wave, just so you knowIt plagues me to absolutely no endYet frustration is the only thing it will rendI hope in vain that someday I can break this trendHowever, as of late I cant hope to winThis war with a trait somewhat akin to sinBut always I will have the hopeTo unbind this thing that holds me like a ropeAnd denies me the things I might achieveThis burden is something I wish to relieveBut wishes is all I can doWhen Im trapped inside of a shoeWhere this demon refuses to be stamped outLike an incompetent bear trying to catch a troutHowever hard I might try I seem to failI wish I could take to this thing a flailBut in the end it always seem to be okayHowever much I complain about the dayProcrastination is winning the warBut for how long, I cannot be sureIn this battle too, it has come out on topIt has wrung me out and used me like a mopDrained of all hope to regressThis issue now I am forced to addressAnd examine myself in a different lightTo determine if this conclusion is right

    My Trip to ItalyR.J. Napolitano 13

    Light peeks in the windowDawnRolling over exhaustedI crawl out of bedThe same person I have beenAbout to be changed foreverToday is the day I travel the worldI showerBrush my teethChange into the same clothes I have worn beforeYet I am about to be differentI am anxiousA little more nervous than usual as I enter the car with my familyNo one says muchWe are all excitedPulling up to the airport I jump outThe same person I have always been, about to be changedWe board the plane and head across the worldLand in ItalyI cant believe my eyesI once thought the world was so smallNever really appreciating what else was out thereNow I am changingNew languageNew peopleNew cultureA whole new worldEverything else seems so small seeing how vast this world isHours away there are people doing the same thing as us only differentlyOur actions seem so small in a world so vastI see new peopleThey look the same but talk differentA new type of personThe food is different but wonderfulThe music is a nice change to the songs I have heardThe architecture is stunningHow did I not know about this?So many people just float through lifeNot appreciating the vastness of this earthSo many people concerned with hating other people

    How can you when the world is so big and beautiful?I am changing knowing now how much is out thereA problem with my friends now seems so smallThere is such beauty on this earth that has been here foreverFor thousands of years and is still as stunning as it has always beenWe eat the foodSee the museumsMeet the peopleVisit different townsNew experiences each dayThe trip is almost overI am ready to get homeBut I will never forget thisIt has changed how I see the worldThere is so much more out thereHalf way across the worldBut still humansAs we pack I am amazed at the tripWe board the plane and head homeI am still the same person I wasBut I am changedMy viewMy attitudeAll alteredIn a good wayThe trip really showed me what was out thereAnd taught me to be more understandingThe world has so much beauty to offerAnd to see it was amazingWe touched down at returned homeI crawled into the bed I had left ten days beforeThe same person I wasBut I closed my eyes with new experiences that I will never forget

    Little did I know I would call them the best years of allMy education was now starting for the long haul

    Damn, how I miss being 6...

    At the age of 7, I started to make some new friendsKids I would spend the rest of my life with.Who can forget nap time during the day?

    Or the simple grammar lessons learned day to dayDamn, how I miss being 7

    At the age of 8, I received my first test, Bombed it. Year skipped by.

    Knew that my education would be long one, But thought that grades had no meaning at all.

    Damn, how I miss being 9...

    At the age of 10, I finally made double digits,That didnt necessarily turn out to be a good thing

    My parents got divorced so suddenly andMy life took a turn for the worst

    Damn, how
