Despite Your Many Achievements - Poem by Francis Duggan

Despite your many achievements have you had your moments of self doubt
Have you to yourself ever wondered what this living life is about
To me you are one who is cocky and not lacking in self esteem
You walk on the street with a swagger so full of yourself you do seem
You have the look at me addiction though sadly your type are not rare
Humility to you a stranger of self you are only aware
Texting your friends whilst out walking you seem quite attached to your phone
It keeps you from looking at others without it you would feel alone
A victim of modern technology so many are like you today
Into texting and taking selfies this is the twenty first century way
On a balmy evening in Summer of a pleasant twenty degrees
The wild birds are chirping and singing on the high branches of the trees
But of Nature's beauty you do not notice too busy texting on your phone
Suppose without modern technology you would feel depressed and alone.
