Can I Have My Learning To Go
Youth Of Today
What does it mean ?
When they say I don't read
With a straight face
You got to be joking ?
Reading is so important every day?
You do it automatically
I only do it when I have to
Why read when I can find anything I need to know on my new phone
I am taken back for a second
Don't you see ?
How much fun you can have?
When I read I am so bored
I fall a sleep almost instantly
I don't believe you for a minute
Your pulling my leg?
You read on your phone every day?
No I don't I text
You have to read your text don't you ?
Not really ?
I just glance and get the main points
If any of my text are too long I skip them all together
I go to you tube a lot or wait to see the movie
I am shocked
I love to pick up a book and let the words pull at my mind
A tug of war
That goes back and forth
I never know what words will win
I am in for the greatest challenge of my life
Sure I tend to lean to one direction or another
Trying to influence my mind one way
What I feel will benefit my body and soul
Then words creep in I didn't expect
I am bombarded with so many thoughts
It is impossible to control them all
Some slip through the cracks
Lucky I have my own army waiting
That carefully inspects every thought
More clever than the C. I. A.
Making sure only my best work is appreciated
Any mistakes that I make are left for further investigation
They are never a cold case
They are cases to be considered open and pending
Needing more information to make a proper evaluation
Then I ask more important questions
What are your plans for your future ?
I don't have any for today how could I possibly know next week or next year
That would be a waste of my precious time
Thinking about something that may never happen
Don't you know you make things happen
I don't believe that for a minute
If that was true I would be a millionaire and wouldn't be here
I just wake up every day and live my life
Any way I see fit
That is living
What about saving for a rainy day
I don't get it
I have know Idea what you are talking about
It is not raining and if it was
I would probably sleep my day away
Just like today
Why are you so tired ?
I caught reruns of Married With Children
It was a marathon one show after another
I watched three episodes then I fell a sleep
You yawn and show no enthusiasm
About what ?
There is nothing to be excited about
Just another day
As I am suddenly so frustrated and aggravated of our conversation
You don't even seem moved by it
I am just waking up
Too much for one day
My brain can't take it anymore
You know your brain has a limitless capacity to store billions of bits of knowledge
I don't want to remember all that
More stuff I will never use
Don't get me going
Where are you going
It is just an expression
Within seconds my fellow college student became less and less interested in our conversation
His eyes glazed over like on something
Going back on his phone he said I will be write back
I have to go the bathroom
I said did I bore you ?
This is your life we are talking about
I have lived more than half my life already
As he walks away
I feel like I am at the end of a scene
Where the camera fades out
As his body gets smaller and smaller until he is out of sight
I can't write anymore
Till I digest all this knew information
Trying to understand times have changed
I feel like I am trying to make a thousand piece puzzle
I have it half done from long hard work and careful preparation
Puzzles what a waste of time
I can't be bothered
I would rather go play a computer game
So much more real life action
You don't know what you are missing ?
No you don't know what you are missing?
The thing I call life
