February 23rd…“WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM YOU REMEMBER HAVING IN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL?”
POEM – “Lack Of Having Focus” by N. Elliott Noorlun
Dollars went to scholars, But not to guys like me,
The only way to find them, Was on my bended knee.
In High School days, I found some ways, To put dollars in my pocket,
I carried bags, At the grocery store, And ran just like a rocket.
My first real job, In High School days, Had its ups and down,
No longer could I play my sports, Or run around the town.
The coach said, “Either you are here, At practice EVERY day”,
“Or don’t bother even coming, There is no other way.”
So, even though I made some bucks, My last two years of school,
I missed out on some memories, That may have been real cool.
I felt the biggest problem, though, Was lack of having focus,
Upon the future, And its goals, There was no “hocus pocus”.
So take my counsel, young one, Find your passion and “take aim”,
Then focus on your life long quest, Don’t wander….it’s so lame.
