live life for the experience

forget where the camera is

too many people want to see

whatever it was that they just did

but they miss too many moments

too caught up in technology

the more we use our i-phones

the less we have real memories

of times we can still feel

not just pictures we can only see

is this life real

or are we make believe?

you can take or leave

these words of mine

technology is fine

from time to time

but beware of the matrix

before youre an addict

jonesing for a fix

and your life is lived online

get back to reality

while theres still time






About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
