Poetry Monday: Abundance

Our attention is pulled so many ways
The abundance can be captivating
We can’t escape the information maze

Sifting through the data always takes days
But there’s never enough time for sorting
Our attention is pulled so many ways

Trapped and fighting through the media haze
Struggling to keep our will from breaking
We can’t escape the information maze

Investing in silence that never pays
The noise is ever encapsulating
Our attention is pulled so many ways

As the world dies in a glorious blaze
We can’t decide to run or keep fighting
We can’t escape the information maze

We’d like to think we’re going through a phase
How do we stop always overthinking?
Our attention is pulled so many ways
We can’t escape the information maze

From the poetry collection Cats, Coffee, Catharsis.
