The Wandering Mind

Where is my mind, not in the here and now

Why does it wander, why does it not allow

Complete immersion in the task before me

Why am I distracted so easily?

Multitasking is what I think I do

Honestly, that is simply not true

In trying to attend to multiple things together

I pay attention to nothing whatsoever

My stressed out mind in a time-crunch always

Wants to be efficient, instead my days

Are spent in a fugue of some kind

Nothing seems to really impact my mind

While trying to be mindful, I am anything but

To multiple distractions, my mind I cannot shut


Sometimes I wonder how much more productive

Would I be if undivided attention I could give

To the task before me, everything else ignore..

I should start with ignoring my greed for more
