Let the temptation arise,
Let the temptation arise,
For your job lies,
To not fight,
For the attention shifts,
And their reach,
In the mind’s slate,
Keeps growing,
More and more,
And the motivation dries,
And left energy cries,
And concentration fries.

Don’t fight the distraction,
Just shift your attention,
To what’s needed,
And let the job done,
Right then and there.

And as moments pass by,
See the temptation die,
For their nature transient,
Emerging from emptiness,
And if not bothered,
And not disturbed,
They naturally die,
Falling back in,
Infinite emptiness.



P.S: Thank you and deep gratitude for reading my poems. It’s a newly discovered talent in me, maybe not rhyming and good enough, but I found poetry is the best medium to express our emotions. And that’s the reason I started writing them, it frees up my mind, relaxes me, and the creative expression is deeply fulfilling. I mostly write with my feelings and experience, and not to fill the word limit, so have to include these lines in every poem as they are shorter than one one-fifty words to publish. Accept my gratitude (although I don’t have much).
