Attention Span - Poem by Joel V Benjamin

Since there are many things worth pondering,
I rarely restrain my mind from wandering.
It doesn't stay on one track,
But leaves often and comes back.
Life has issued to me a limited ration
Of that essential ingredient: concentration.
If I could think of one thing at a time,
I'd attain heights sublime.
But I happen to be a man
With a short attention span,
So you'll have to repeat what you just said;
I was thinking of something else instead!

    A well articulated piece of poetry with delicious blend of humour, psychology, philosophy and life, insightfully penned with conviction. Lovely poem with good rhyme scheme bristling with wisdom. Thanks for sharing Joel. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
