My published verses.Personal Development

So forget shopping list. Will it obviate problem or write off.. ??

On the onset, I was serious to see the real problem and seek the possible solution!..
But alas!

Well! Le’me attempt some causes to the problem.?.

The technology gave us gadgets and gizmo’s
The intent to do things double time added some more load.
the parents were in a haste to see their child is worth putting into a leadership/ earning position fast.
