Gadgets World

Never in history of mankind
have been so connected-
smartphones and tablets
make us reachable 24/7
Our lives are filled
with endless distractions
of alarms.
commuter woes and traffic.
the rhythm of modern life
is punctuation by beeps.bleeps
and generalized attention
deficit disorder
The very gadgets that meant
to simplify our lives
that make us complain or whining
and become losers and make us
out-argue or out-do others
perhaps what is needed is to occasionally silence
all those beeping and flashing
that incessantly demand our attention
and pause to reflect
on whatever we are on course
in our life journey
