The strain of modern life…

The strain of modern life,

Becomes too much to bear at times.

Multi-tasking, over-committing and over-scheduling,

We try to work faster, harder, better.

Glued to our electronic devices

We expose ourselves to eyestrain.

Making our perception cloudy,

This lifestyle makes us miss out on the important things.

Things like spending time with family

And hanging out with old friends.

We also tend not to notice

Certain obvious little joys.

Raindrops, rainbows, the first flowers of spring,

Sunrises, sunsets; so many wondrous things.
