Old Habit

Time is ticking
It's 10:33 P. M now while I write this
I only have an hour and 22 minutes left
To post my fourth entry
Before midnight strikes

I have this habit
Of doing things at the last hour
A habit that hasn't changed
Since my college days
I try to do things early
But, it's how my brain works
In doing tasks that require thinking and writing
It works under pressure

There were days when I only get a few hours of sleep
To meet a deadline and it worked for me
Now I'm not certain if I still get the same result
Which is finishing on time

Twenty four more days of writing
Is quite tedious
Coming up with 50 unique words sounds easy
When in reality it is not
When you have to squeeze your brain
For inspiration and spill a poem
While having a writer's block

This doesn't even sound like a poem
But this is NaPoWriMo
A challenge I don't want to miss
Thus, I will persists
Until I reach the finish line in this race
