A sonnet. Don't get so caught up in details that you miss the big picture! ;-)

The Simple Things

I set the alarm but my clock never rings
I'm late again,scrambling around
Trying to set everything straight, pull all the strings
Running my whole day right into the ground

I dash out the door and feel the cool morning air
Trying to find my car, where did I park?
This behavior in the morning, I draw all the stares
It may be light outside, but I still think it's dark

Heading down the street, approaching the highway
I can't shake this feeling of forget
What have I neglected to remember this day?
My entire sanity, I'm willing to bet

And as I pull into this lonely school lot
I realize school is cancelled; it's all for naught.
