Scrolling through my twitter feed today,
I realized one fundamental thing:
We live in a world where memories
Are now accessible through a tap,
A scroll, a click, a search.
There is no escaping what is there
For the rest of the world to preserve.
Especially today, where privacy is
Blessing rather than an expectancy-
I struggle to find my way around
Painful snips of the past.
We no longer need photos,
Or letters, or dare I say it-
All we need is a username, a password,
And a wifi connection and the world
Is at our knees.
Our brains are lackluster in comparison
To the giant super network that lives
Through the wires and signals of the earth.
What are we even?
Man or machine?
We rely so heavily on the technology around us, I would find it astonishing
If man could put down the cellphone.
And maybe, perhaps,
Pick up a pen or a book.
