Being Bored Is Such A Waste Of Time

Updated on July 14, 2013

You Should Know Better

With all the technology I can't believe I hear these words

I am bored

I have to think for a minute while I gain my composure

You have to be joking right ?

You had me believing you for a minute

Wow you said that with such a straight face

What do you mean your not joking ?

You are dead serious

Now you have to excuse me for a minute

I feel really ill

My head is pounding and my stomach is doing flips

If you are bored now you will never be happy

I see a million things before my eyes

I only comprehend a very small portion of them

You are exposed to so much knowledge every day

I never had or even could fathom

I should be laughing hysterically at this very moment

Because life has handed me a cruel joke

Most young people don't get the humor

I always tell them it's an inside joke and they don't get that either

So as I shake my head instead of trying to explain it over and over again

Until I turn blue

I walk away with one final laugh

They give me one last look

As if I am the crazy one

      ocfireflies I think the more I plan the more I do.Without plans I am more wishy washy and tend to hesitate and stay in a stuck ( I don't know what to do state.)After planning I have thought more things through and I am ready to put my thoughts into action.Even though life doesn't work the way I had planned 90% of the time.I have new plans in place ready to try again.Laughing at myself and keeping a good sense of humor is so important.Thanx so much for reading and sharing your important thoughts.With tired eyes and dreams so large I continue seeking more excitement in words then I turn up the heat and make it a day I still can't believe.

      I agree that some of us can forget to take advantage of all life has to offer and declare a state of boredom. My problem is that I can be rather indecisive--taking too long to decide rather than just doing it--whatever it may be. Glad that was not the problem today for I could have missed reading your excellent poem.

      Best Always,

      Sparklea I often look around me and I see people less fortunate than myself and I wonder what would they be doing with my life if they had my opportunities and what would I do with theirs.It puts my day in perspective.I might get tired and frustrated but never bored.Thanx for your comments and sharing your zest for life.Have a fun day.

      Dream On: I NEVER get bored. One of my greatest pet peeves is to hear someone say, "I am bored." There is SO MUCH to LIFE, so much to do, to see, to create! You expressed it in such a great way, I could not have said it better! Voted up and awesome. Sparklea :)

      HattiemattieMae I try to do many of the same things.I usually pass out of exhaustion before boredom ever surfaces.I am so pumped enjoying what I see and feel.My creativity comes natural and is abundant as the wonderful things in the world we can experience.I would love to challenge your boredom and turn it into more wonderful hubs.Have a great day.

      hmm...well it is a waste of time some I have read so much watched so many videos, listened to so many audio tapes, studied and observed people for hours and hours, forums, etc. I just get bored some times just cause I always have to find a new way to be creative.
