Grab the phone,
Quickly scan Facebook, twitter.
Too much time passing, focus skittered.
Back on task, e-mails sent.
Running errands, on to the next event.
Now to just make one more stop,
Bargain hunting, fun to shop.
Dinner plans, go on Pinterest
Oops! Too many things grab my interest.
Focus kind of fuzzy
Grab a snack, fill the Tummy.
End of day, work is done
Hang in front of TV with loved ones.
Soon Boredom drifting in,
Check” Insta”, and pin another pin.
Maybe try to read my book,
Attention constantly off the hook.
So easy to become comfortably numb,
Distracted by all that looks and seems fun.
An Aching emptiness is all it leaves behind.
Something more needed to feel alive,
Connection of the truest kind,
To receive and give this love, the key to peace of mind.
