Poem: Multitasking One Thing at a Time
Multitasking One Thing at a Time
I am a multitasker, been so since my teens.
It was hard at first, but waitress must-have it seems.
This talent came in handy, when job later changed,
Did not ask, juggled tasks, no matter how arranged.
One day I got married and had a kid, then two.
Working still, running the house, much I had to do.
Now you’d think this talent would make me supermom,
But that’s not how it works, at everything I’d bomb.
If you have multitasked, you may know what I mean
When there is too much to do, time turns very lean.
I had to make a change, or rest I’d never get
I stopped trying so hard, and now no longer fret.
I still will multitask, but do them one by one.
Now can even enjoy time set aside for fun.
It’s still a bit hard to focus on just one thing
But when I do, yahoo, to peace and calm I cling.
