Keep your eyes on the page
Don’t look away
Don’t look at the ticking clock
Or the burning fire

Keep your mind clear
Try not to think
Don’t think about the deadline
Or the rising emotions

Just stay focused
Push through the block in your mind
Ignore the buzzing in the room
Stay in the zone

Keep your eyes on the page
Stop looking
Don’t stare at the clock
Or the scorching fire

Keep your mind clear
Stop thinking
Don’t worry about the time
Or the raging emotions

Just get back to focusing
Stop staring at the block in your mind
Stop listening to the buzz
Get back in the zone

You failed.
You couldn’t stop
Time just kept on ticking
The fire became wild
And your emotions took over

How could you?
I told you what to do
All you had to do was focus
Why couldn’t you focus?

It’s your fault
You should’ve managed your time
Everyone’s disappointed
Why did you get distracted?
