Where do I begin
what do I say
I never intended for
life to be this way

Years have gone by
many important moments too
Where have I been
lost in this technological goo

I have been caught up
in its spider’s web
Invisible down to its
largest thread

Living in some virtual world
Lost in it
Oblivious
As real events unfurled

Wake Up!
it’s not too late
Wake Up!
don’t leave it all to fate

Stand Up!
switch off the devices strewn around
Stand Up!
put your feet on the ground

Look all round you
what do you see?
Things that are real
and not just vanity

No likes and pluses
retweets and shares
Just items and people
and opportunities to really care

Go for a walk
drop in on a friend
Don’t let life pass you by
it’s so quick to its end
