Everywhere you look
There’s technology
It consumes society
Cell phone by cell phone
Tablet by tablet

Everywhere you look
There’s immorality
Beckoning the world
Magazine by magazine
Celebrity by celebrity

What happened?
There was never this much
In the world before
Now there is
And we’re letting it

Take us over
Person by person

Really true. I'm glad someone cares that technology is taking over our lives and blinding us from the things that really matter in life. Thank you for writing this :) The rhyming is great too.

You've gotta take the good with the bad, smile when you're sad, love what you got and remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget, learn from your mistakes but never regret. People change and things go wrong but always remember life goes on

This is so true and well written! It's short but I like the style and message. Nice job! :)

  I guess there's three of us :)  Everybody loves technology and the next new thing; nobody ever looks back at what we've lost.  It's sad.  As long as we have language, though, we can remember.

It's not bad at all!  I've thought about stuff like that from time to time. It's nice to know I'm not the only one.
