Daily Distractions

A Poem About Being Distracted

By Shauna MullenPublished 4 months ago 1 min read

Desperately trying to concentrate

In a world full of chaos and wonder

Stalling every idea that comes to mind

Thoughts come and go, never come to life

Reminders of lost plans haunt the day

Always disappear into the dark

Count the days of procrastination

Taunting every plan that is born today

Imagination runs wild but halts production

Obedient to the disorder of my mind

Naïve to the aspirations of before
