  1. Here I sit, at 2:00 AM
    Staring at my screen ahead
    Homework is due, in a few days.
    "But you must work, or else twill fail. "

    Ah, but I wish to do different things,
    Can't it wait another day?
    "But oh, remember what happened,
    the last time you tried such a thing?"

    *sigh* How do I learn, not to waste time?
    These tiresome hours just keep passing by!
    Then it rings loud in my ears,
    "Patience, ye must learn to be patient! "

    "Everything worth having takes time and care,
    Nothing comes free, my poor dear.
    Now get back to work, before it gets too late
    Do not shirk, the hours won't wait! "
