Forgetting how to read and write

Updated on May 8, 2013

I just woke up one day in a daze as usual

Thinking about all the hours I had lost last year and the other

On Facebook acting a fool

Hopping around trying to share like a mad dog

Then I realized

wait where did my thoughts go

Did they somehow get sucked into that massive vacuum of a place they call the internet

hold on now

Am I that dumb

Did I think backasswords again

where's my manors

Where's my composure at

I know I had vocabulary much better then this

Holy crap my brain just went dead

Am I considered brain dead now

Hmmm...... (Long Pause!)

This is utter Nonsense

so I went and approached some heavy weighed brain matter material

Also known as a Book

Starred at it for like a whole 5 minutes

then said to myself man oh man I cannot even read that darn thing

I lost my sense for terminology

I picked up a pencil and it was so hard to place it onto paper

what the freak was wrong with my spider sense of direction

did I just get bit by one of those Thingy's on the World wide Web

Yeah you know a spider once known as a Web crawler

maybe that's where all my grammar went

I cannot even spell a single word correctly

Holy smokes I need a vacation from pretending to be a readers digest type

I need a break from trying to be all that I can be as a new age writer

This is far to much

I quit :)

The end

Me when I had normal thoughts and before becoming a online writer, darn I truly miss that dude. I wonder where he's at now :)

      @always exploring, Yes indeed its rough when we try to overload our brains with to many things at once, and taking a break is definitely important for us all to rejuvinate and recharge. Thanks again for you continual support of my writing efforts.

      @Faith Reaper, yup you read it right Faith I quit being dumb, and I will revert back to my old self and become a smart person, get back into reading books, and writing on paper again. No way will I ever quit online writing, networking with all my good friends I've made and the likes, because all of this web stuff is truly priceless indeed.

      Thanks for the cool comment and for showing you care.

      @Bravewarrior, LOL, I'm not going anywhere was just thinking out loud and wanted to let off a little steam. It's tough being confined to my own regiment and set of routines and rules. So it felt good to break free for once and act a fool :)

      Thanks for caring and commenting it means a lot to me.

      Too much??? Now, I know I am not reading this from YOU, Mike, as I know you are NOT a quitter!!! Never give up. We all need a break to allow our minds to relax enough to once again be creative. Hey, you need a spring break is all!

      God bless, Faith Reaper
