Distracted..

mirrorsDistractions abound in the world today

I am guilty of poor concentration, what can I say?

Gone are the days when I could stay absorbed

In the pages of a book, in the words engrossed

Now I have my cell-phone by my side

I get agitated if it goes out of my sight

The need to stay connected constantly is immense

Can’t miss a text or e-mail under false pretense

When I go for a walk in the woods to clear my mind

I find myself unable to completely unwind

I am checking my pedometer, if nothing else

Completing ten thousand steps on my mind dwells. 

At every break, my cell-phone dominates again

As I check e-mail or surf the net, out of habit plain

Trying to read a medical journal like a joke appears

I google so much that the paper’s essence disappears

What can you do, when multiple links online you see

Each one is clickable, you can read them for free…

Now you see how in my warped existence

Technology intervenes in every word and sentence!
