Trying to catch

a smile or hello

Tougher by the day

everyone on the go


Look in the mirror

I’m as bad as the rest

Still up to me

What I focus on next


Slow, quiet moments

Staring at the stars

Strolling on the sidewalk

Cruising in our cars


Fighting for yours

Struggling for mine

All slowly losing

Our spaces in time


Hanging on facebook

Sending a tweet

Gets in the way

Of the people we meet


Got more to do

Can’t stay focused

Busy, busy, busy

Oh Somebody help us


Searching for a glance

chance to say hello

stuck in the race

on your mark, get set, go


Pause for a thought

Take a deep breath

Dream a dream

And take it West


try to find

the white picket fence

will any of this world

start making sense


got gadgets and gizmos

to keep us connected

but these clever devices

are not what we expected
