THIS IS A 100 WORDS CONTEST ENTRY

Focus

Published by CLESA | Wednesday, December 15, 2010 7:35 AM


Somtimes the smallest things can be extremely amusing to us, especially when we are bored or having a hard time focusing. This is a BR 100 word contest entry.


The scribbles on the board make little sense to me right now.
Focus.
I hear words being spoken, but I can’t seem to make out the meaning.
Focus.
My eyes shift and are caught on a scrap of paper. Its crumpled perfection amuses me.
Focus.
A strand of my hair comes loose. I have to fix it now.
Focus.
The hustle and bustle of the quiet classroom throws distractions at me from every direction.
The sound of words directed towards me pulls me back.
“Can you give us the answer to number four?”
“Umm, I… I…”
wish I had focused.
