Too Busy

Too busy, too busy, too busy.”
How many times have we used this,
As our life turned hazy,
And the race took us in
?
 
How many friends have we lost,
Not due to a fight, just lost touch?
Faded bonds, irreplaceable memories,
No time for talks or well-meant pleasantries.

 
How many dreams have we crushed,
As to some other day, we pushed?
Cause life is just so damn busy,
To seize a moment for ourselves.

 
Now, that we have all the time,
We flush it down the drain.
“Too bored, too bored, too bored.”
All we do is complain.

    A beautiful reminder of how we see and use the time given to us. The questions you pose forces the reader to consider their own choices and situation. But more importantly, it reminds us that we are bound to the choices we make. Loved everything about this poem! ❤😘

        And I can feel the pain your friends go though for keeping them awake only to hear you rant, hahahh.
        1 quick question, why don’t you decide to just sleep for a change?

        Now I’m feeling a bit sad and thinking of studying for a while (so that the entire night doesn’t go complete waste)

        Wise words from an experienced procrastinator!
        I know I know, they’ve already started hitting me, and sleep is also on its way, but my battle for convincing my own self that I can do it has began, and hopefully I shall win (said by me almost everynight.. Ugh)
        Trying to focus on that fact that I’ve to study moreover the struggle of keeping awake the whole night..

        Thinking about what happens next in the series, I might as well sit and watch😂
        Coffee, has never worked for me as a sleep depriver, also, I love plain black coffee without sugar and can fall asleep immediately after drinking it..
        Daytime studying is actually impossible, lot of distractions plus I’ve got work from home too!
        Thanks for the luck, it’s the need of the hour!

        Hahah thanks, if I could actually study, I’d term myself amazing too!
        Work gets going properly and studies are neglected. And although I post only on Mondays, I’ve been facing difficulties to get time to write, finish the book I started, watch my series and do the other work I love to do..
        So i guess, amazing would be an overestimation for me. But thanks you thought I was so

        Reading a book..I read a lot of self help books and autobiographies of self made people, just to ignite some fire. I’m currently reading A 4 hour workweek by Tim Ferriss.
        Although I’ve been wanting to write a book too, but haven’t really started writing 😰

        Maybe… u can hold on with mass com as a profession and English as your passion.
        Well, what we plan for doesn’t always come true,so we gotta count upon the tricks of time, too!!
        (Ik, it’s easier said than done)😝😜
        And then, life is uncertain,we know that😃😃👻.

    The last line is always come in our life, no time to not complain. Even our life is better, we still complain, all of aspects were perfect, but we still complain again. The era was change, we live in a place where people never satisfied, till they forget to take a rest for a moment. Your poem so deep, thanks for reveale it better. I hope we can more respect our time with our beloved person 👍🤗 great poem 😊❤❤

    How’s it goin’?
    Busy.
    I’m sorry to hear that.
    Sorry? Why?
    Because you’re not in control of your Life?
    No, I’m just busy.
    Your still not in control. You have no free time.
    ***************************************************
    and now, what they say next, will likely tell the reason behind the story. They might say:
    1. But I LIKE being busy.
    Really? I cant help wondering: what are they avoiding, or distracting themselves from?—OR—they stay busy because they, sadly, dont know how to “play” and have fun. They really dont know what else to do with themselves.
    2. But I’m…..Productive. I get things done.
    That may be, but I’m betting half of them don’t really need to be done at all, or at least not with one-quarter ofany uregency they might feel about it.
    In 90% of the cases, ypou could probably boil it down to one of those two things, or both.
    But, for all of their busyness…..where is the JOY??
    Where is the: Yeeaaaaaah Baaabbyy! enthusiastic ZEST in Life? How often do they smile BIG, or laugh? Probably too busy…….
