The Objects of My (In)attention

I am having a pity party today

For first world problems are blocking my way

These self-created problems prevent

My time from being gainfully spent..

**

I have been guilty, I do confess

Of acquiring new things, trying to possess

The biggest, the best, and definitely more

Of everything I can, even if I have to store

Extra stuff that does not the light of day see

Locked away, collects dust and cobwebs in plenty

**

One day, unfortunately, you realize

Neglecting all belongings has been unwise

New problems you suddenly find with things old

As you sort through unused objects, miseries unfold

Now time and money are funneled needlessly

In something that was unneeded, obviously…

**

Today I am trying to dodge this self-made noose

Blind consumerism has led to me to lose

Precious time, money and peace of mind-

To keep us trapped, possessions are designed

This is a lesson learnt the hard way

I hope I shall keep new acquisitions at bay!
