A sleepy teen's mullings over deadlines.

Checkboxes

by herobreaker

Red ink fills my notebooks and wrists.

Tired eyes, sloppy print.

Lines and lines of scribbled deadlines and unchecked boxes.

My life is a string of unchecked boxes.

And I wonder. Is this how it's meant to be?

Non-stop. Machine. Work faster. Faster. FASTER.

So little time. So much to do. So many checkboxes unticked.

I should stop. I should sleep. But I can't.

And I confess:

This stress the checkboxes bring, the guilt, the worry. . .

. . . I crave it.

Something needs to keep me working.

I need to stay busy. I won't let myself sleep.

And as I run out of time, I wonder.

What's the point?

Great stuff we can control time by allocating to different tasks and as you free fall from a plane time seems to slow down so time is only relevant to the task at hand
