I just wanna be able to sing like the birds, not worrying who hears or what they think


dear technology, you are starting to ruin our lives
we're just a little too invested in these laptops and thumbdrives
something has been lost and we need to get it back
we have lost the ability to truly feel and interact
social media has held us captive and kept us down
immersed in a cyber sea, we are starting to drown
but when Im far away and i need my loved ones near
just a few clicks will show them I care
but its hard to wrap emails in ribbons and bows
what we would do without Facebook and twitter, no one knows
Dear technology sincerity has become a thing of the past
people start looking for love on computer screens so nothing lasts
nothing is private, all data is open to the universe
chords attach us to the world and thats how we converse
to these gadgets we've fallen prey
we need a social media free vacation to get away
on this journey of life I cant derail from its tracks
so hey technology, im gonna unplug and relax

Well this poem was inspired by the mangers of this program I'm in called Youmedia Miami at my library. I just came in one day and they write a poem about technology and this is what I produced
