Has This Happened To You ?

Updated on September 26, 2012

Sooner Or Later

I sit and I am busy doing something almost anything

Then my mind and body lose power

It thinks in a whole new direction

No matter what my focus was I am distracted

Automatically as if someone had pushed a button

In an instant I go about my business again as if it never happended

I quickly dismiss any thought that I have to admit I had no control over any action

I feel helpless and weak

Until again a had no chance to react and all my energy is diverted

As if I was onboard a military submarine and I got the word

Abort.,abort and I change course immediately

No matter how many years this current state of affair has always taken place

I can be outside,inside or even in the water

It takes me over like a rash

One day I have it and the next day it's gone

Why it came or where it came from I am not sure

I have so many questions and so little answers

When this awkward situation arises I apologize and accept oh my

I have also been a witness to others who have fallen prey

They have no will power to stop and they are twice as strong as me

It seems it happens equally among men and women and children too

But the real mystery is when you feel it coming and it doesn't come

You wait and you inbetween all your senses

Some people say look up to the light your eyes hold the key

I haven't tried it yet and this is news to me

Well when this will happen it's not if it is just a matter of time

I will be watching and listening


I hear something

Yes I am sure


This time it was you

Another sneeze and another God Bless you followed by a thank you or excuse me

So keep your eyes peeled and stay alert

A second sneeze might be on it's way

You are the only one who can stop it

Maybe your like so many millions of other people

Let it take over

Sit and laugh as it is quite funny to watch and it does no real harm at all

      I simply could not see what was coming, as I read line after line.

      The last part of your poem of course had me kicking myself and laughing out loud.

      You are a gem.
