Poems and Poetry

So Close | A Poem by Guy Farmer

So close to the
Problem at hand,
Failing to see any
Simpler solution,
Though many exist.

Compulsive obsession,
Absolute focus on
Undesirable options,
Unknowingly banishing
Common sense.

A moment of clarity,
Scenario viewed
From a different angle,
Yielding far better
Results, tranquility.
