So that I will do properly
Qayyum

I will have to do needed work
 1
that now comes to a lot,
 2
yet I wonder,
 3
if I had the fuel to finish it
 4
without descending into total loss,
 5
loss of motivation,
 6
as in, time is wasted.
 7
 
 
 
 
That, so that
 8
some fuel is spared
 9
for the next work.
 10
 
 
 
 
That is why I procrastinate,
 11
keep putting off
 12
things that must be done,
 13
keep figuring and figuring out
 14
this and that,
 15
so that I can do everything perfectly.
 16
Sometime people will say to me:
 17
oh, don't worry, nothing is perfect.
 18
 
 
 
 
I am sarcastic about that phrase,
 19
because others around me
 20
took the phrase like this
 21
as an excuse:
 22
oh, why worry? Nothing is perfect.
 23
 
 
 
 
I wonder why people keep skimming important things in work
 24
so that they can have more time
 25
to rest at home.
 26
It was like blaming the One
 27
for my own misfortunes.
 28
 
 
 
 
It is technically true, however
 29
the misfortunes are brought by
 30
because I know that
 31
I will cause misfortune
 32
on other people,
 33
but if only because my habit of
 34
always wanting to rush through.
 35
 
 
It is commendable ethic,
 36
this want to rush through things.
 37
To me, it lead to
 38
shortest and
 39
most straightforward direction.
 40
 
 
 
 
It is good,
 41
because no time is wasted on our part.
 42
because it lead to less waste of time.
 43
 
 
 
 
However, sometimes,
 44
essentials are missed during the rushing.
 45
By Allah! Look at how many defects!
 46
All just because these things are left out!
