Ode To Distraction - Poem by Cynthia Yildirim

Those that extort, distract
Our paths become distant, lost
Walking too quickly, we allude time
Sun to moon, Moon to sun
Our children grow and vanish into life
Daily strife
Walking too slowly, we are surpassed
We are poor, disadvantaged
Sun to sun, Sun to sun
We are yearning
Seeing those of sun to moon with jealousy
He is us, we are them, they are I
He distracts our path
We give in at last
Taste our tears
Too many years
Regret; What is this?
Dreamt careers lost
He took them
That thief!
The course of grief
Distraction, Reaction, Dissatisfaction
Careless destruction
Caught at the junction
No breath to function
Satisfaction, Lust
Woe to us!
He thrives, on these disparities
Impure qualities!
